Our Why

We want girls to be confident with who they are and what they can do - connecting their heart and mind to be their true authentic self.

In addition, we foster positive relationships with other girls and women coaches as role models and mentors. 

We encourage connection - with self, other, and group to build a sense of community.

What We Do

Encourage the power of a "can-do" mindset. It's a place where girls learn their strengths.

Through writing and discussions, girls express their ideas, interests and passions. These skills can help them grow into the leaders of tomorrow. 

Girls will build communication skills and confidence.

How We Do It

Meeting on a regular basis allows for skill building through personal, fun and engaging activities to include:

  • movement 

  • storytelling

  • public speaking

  • songwriting

  • creative writing

  • visual art

 We want to have fun, learn and grow!

Where does our curriculum come from? The curriculum for Girls in the Spotlight programs and Girls Launch is licensed from Escape Velocity, LLC.

Our historic Biz Girls curriculum designed for high school students was the first program delivered in 2015 when we became a 501c3. Originally it was a program under the Rockies Venture Club until the Executive Director, Peter Adams,  decided to spin it out as a non-profit with its own leadership team. Two of the original leaders, Hope Hartman and Denichiro "Denny" Otsuga, Ph.D. remain highly involved with the organization today.
