Meet the course alumni positively impacting the world
It’s been over two years since Empowered Flower Girl launched Girl World Peace Academy (GWPA). In such a short time, our dedicated alumni (from the U.S. and Canada) have made an immeasurable impact in their communities. These trailblazers are changing the world one step at a time with every girl they empower, every woman they inspire, and every life they touch.
From Michigan to South Carolina, we salute a few of our incredible alumni:
Chantia Thompson- Girlz Empowered
Chantia, who joined our very first cohort of amazing participants, is inspiring girls and women to be well. We’re excited to announce that this spring, Chantia is opening her first wellness center in the Detroit metro area! “Our mission is to offer a safe space for the community to heal and grow into their authentic self.” Services will include healing circles, yoga, meditation, literacy programs, doula services and more.
Tameka Citchen Spruce – My Girl Story Documentary
Since enrolling in GWPA, Tameka has been out in the community making connections and a difference. Her award-winning documentary, “My Girl Story,” is now available on Tubi and she works as co-director of a leadership program for BIPOC individuals with disabilities and parents of children with disabilities. “I was selected for NACDD’s Betty Williams Champion of Equal Opportunity Award and Unlock Her Potential Mentorship program with W. Kamau Bell as my mentor.”
Porshe Colts – Breaking Barriers No Boundaries Inc
These days, Porshe and BBNB are creating valuable and memorable workshops for girls in the Columbia, S.C. area. On April 14,2023 the organization assisted in hosting the first annual college tour in the area for middle and high school girls. “It was all of the girls’ first time visiting a college campus and they loved it! We are looking forward to growth and more partnerships in the near future.”
About Girl World Peace Academy
Girl World Peace Academy is a self-guided online course + coaching for youth advocates of all backgrounds – from teachers and counselors to after-school program professionals and mentors.
This course is especially for you if:
- You aspire to make a difference in the lives of girls and young women.
- Girls in your school or community face social or emotional challenges (bullying, peer pressure, trauma, etc.) that impact their ability to thrive.
- You seek empowering and interactive tools and content that complement your current or future SEL, prevention or after-school programming.
- You can use help getting the word out about the good you’re doing (to media, sponsors and potential participants)
