Girl Power United offers several workshops to empower teenage girls through learning and gaining necessary skills to utilize their knowledge.  We focus on a continuous journey towards empowerment, discovery, education, and self-fulfillment of teen girls within the community while emphasizing their importance and self-worth through God’s eyes. 


These interactive empowerment workshops allow GPU volunteers encourage teenage girls to discover their full potential, natural talents, and positively influence their behaviors and attitudes.  Empowerment workshops cover pertinent areas of learning and guidance in a young girls’ life.
