The problem of low self-esteem is pervasive among pre-adolescent and adolescent girls in the United States. Research conducted by the Girl Scout Research Institute and other organizations demonstrates that risky behavior such as smoking, drinking, unsafe sexual behavior, eating disorders, suicidal tendencies, and self-mutilative behavior are often associated with low self-esteem.
IAB recognizes the benefits of age specific outreach. We offer programs for B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L girls and women of ALL ages. Our programs focus on building self-esteem and awareness by shifting the typical paradigm and teaching girls and women that what they have inside makes them beautiful, special and unique.
