Description

"LUNCH & T-SHIRT PROVIDED"

Find Your Power is designed for middle school/high school students. The course offers empowerment, inspiration and some street fighting skills developed to counterattack a perpetrator. We let women know they have the right to stand up for themselves in relationships and on the street. Divas In Defense aids in removing young women’s fear as they learn how to escape violent situations.


A physical, emotional and psychological enriching self-defense system designed for young ladies ages 11 - 17. We implement real-life scenarios in our training to better prepare our girls for the dangers society presents. We are careful and meticulous in conveying societal dangers and issues that girls in this demographic face. Our program not only prepares these girls not to be scared, it empowers them to have heightened self-esteem, confidence, fight obesity and Find Their Power.

I’m A Lady – I Can Do Anything!

These young ladies deconstruct gender roles, expectations, and stereotypes. We help them think critically and assist in making decisions on how to look, act, and be based on their individual thoughts and feelings rather than on societal expectations. They will learn the historical origins of stereotypes, how to think critically, and the importance of seeing people as individuals will help them challenge stereotypes. They also learn self-love and first response techniques to protect themselves.

Bullying Prevention & Healthy Friendships

We define healthy relationships and empower them to set boundaries for themselves in relationships. They will learn to use alternatives to language that hurt others and use language that makes them proud. The workshop helps facilitate effective communication and can help them avoid conflict. In addition, they are trained to defend themselves from bullies.

What/Who Are Your Supports & Internet Safety

They identify family, community, and school supports to assist with finding their power. These young ladies learn about potential dangers of the internet; plan how they will stay safe when using the internet. We discuss cyber predators, identity theft prevention and social media etiquette.

I Am Worth Fighting For

Empowerment and personal value are instilled in this segment which introduces these young ladies to the application of learned techniques in real-life situations. They grasp the importance of personal safety, awareness and boundary setting in their day-to-day lives. The best way to avoid danger is to realize it before it happens. The final part of this workshop expedites response time and teaches situational awareness in society.
