Authentic Girl Foundation
"As persons are accepted and prized, they tend to develop a more caring attitude toward themselves." - Carl Rogers
Authentic Girl Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to empower 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:
- proactive skill building
- meaning, purpose, and goal orientation
- flexibility, tolerance, and collaborative problem-solving
