Authentic Girl Foundation

Authentic Girl Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to empower low-income/at-risk girls through life coaching via our Sponsorship Program.

How can coaching help meet the needs of adolescent girls at risk?

  • Coaching can fill the support gap between school and problem-focused interventions found in the mental health field or the justice system.
  • Studies show three factors are important for effective, positive interventions for this audience: (1) a one-on-one relationship with a caring, supportive adult (2) competency building (3) time intensity. Coaching offers all three.

We coach our girls with unconditional positive regard – a caring, accepting, non-judgmental attitude, which allows the client to drop defenses and develop the self awareness and self acceptance needed to self actualize.

We apply research-based coaching as an empowerment tool. Our coaching interventions emphasize:

  • self-awareness
  • self-determination
  • proactive skill building
  • meaning, purpose, and goal orientation
  • flexibility, tolerance, and collaborative problem-solving
