Girls Spark a 501 (c) 3 Organization
YOUNG WOMEN ACROSS THE WORLD ARE FACED WITH CHALLENGES EVERYDAY
Girls Spark is an organization created by and for teen girls!
Our Mission is to provide teenage girls with a supportive, empowering environment where they can learn, collaborate and overcome adversity in facing today’s social issues.
We are guided by a passionate teen leadership board of high school girls and an adult board with a shared vision of helping girls navigate the challenging social issues they face in today’s world.
Our events are designed to Ignite Awareness, Overcome Adversity and Inspire Others!
THE GIRL WHO WENT FOR IT!
Meet our Founder, Julia Kasper
In 2018, as a high school junior I created Girls Spark in order to make a positive difference in the lives of young women. Throughout my life I watched my mom, a President and CEO of her own business, attend various women’s conferences, featuring inspiring leaders.
I searched for something similar that speaks to the issues teen girls face but found nothing.
In fact, almost every girl in my age group faces some sort of social, physical or emotional struggle and has to find a way to deal with it. Unfortunately, we often feel like we have to overcome these CHALLENGES alone!
My goal is to change that by spreading awareness and providing a forum for my peers to share and discuss some of these topics. I want to IGNITE awareness, OVERCOME adversity, and INSPIRE change in others to make a difference in young woman’s lives...big or small!
