Girls Empowerment Network has utilized our We Are Girls Conferences to bring our self-efficacy building curriculum to a vast number of girls at one time. This year, we are taking it on the road to help 2,000 girls across Texas plan for their futures and positively engage with their communities. Girls are looking for meaningful ways to connect now more than ever, and that’s where our volunteers come in! For girls in grades 3-12, we want to include an inspiring element of connection in our We Are Girls On The Road swag bags - Affirmation Bookmarks.

So what are Affirmation Bookmarks?These bookmarks written by Girls Empowerment Network volunteers aim to inspire, encourage, and uplift girls throughout our community. Affirmation Bookmarks provide volunteers with a unique way of supporting and celebrating girls.

Be sure to check out our Volunteer FAQs.This document is full of tips, guidelines, and example Affirmation Bookmarks!

What should be included in my bookmarks?

  • The bookmarks should have 8.5 inches x 2.75 inches in dimension.
  • The bookmarks should, at a minimum, have the thickness of cardstock ( this is to ensure they are a bit more sturdy/durable than if they were written on notebook or computer paper ). However, you don’t have to use cardstock - you can use any similar material that can be found around the house/apartment, i.e. shoeboxes, cardboard boxes, etc.
  • Volunteers are asked to write a minimum of 7-10 different bookmarks.
  • We are currently asking for handwritten/hand decorated bookmarks as this provides a personalized and meaningful touch.
  • We recommend taking 1-2 weeks max to complete your bookmarks.
  • We welcome decorations, colors, markers, and stickers! We suggest using a variety of bright and bold colors.
  • Ensure your writing is legible and use language that is accessible to young folks.
  • Use inclusive language in your bookmarks (see our inclusive language section in the FAQs!)
  • Steer away from language about physical attributes.
  • Do not share identifying/personal information on your bookmark.
  • When you have completed your 7+ bookmarks, you will mail them to:
    PO BOX 3122, Austin, Texas, 78764 (ATTN: Relatable Role Model Letters). Please include your first and last name in the return address area of the mailing envelope so that we can credit you for your volunteer hours!

What are some creative elements that you could you include in your bookmark?

  • Share your favorite quote celebrating the power of girls/youth.
  • Provide a short affirmation that is uplifting.
  • Include stickers and doodles.
  • Draw powerful role models who have inspired you ( we’re excited to see your renditions of Michelle Obama, Frida Kahlo, and Ruth Bader Ginsberg! )

Mission Statement

Girls Empowerment Network's mission is to ignite the power in girls by teaching them the skills to thrive and believe in their ability to be unstoppable.

Description

Girls Empowerment Network (GIRLS) increases girls' self-efficacy by: 1. Equipping them with the skills they need to navigate the dangers and pressures of adolescence. 2. Forging healthy, supportive bonds so they know they are never alone. 3. Surrounding them with relatable role models who encourage, inspire, and guide. GIRLS has numerous programs that serve girls in Central Texas, Houston, and Dallas in grades 3-12, including after-school programming, workshops, and an annual statewide, multi-city We Are Girls Conference.
