The mission of the Shimmer Sparkle Shine Project is to help girls and women through positive activities that nourish them to realize their own individual worth and potential.
Our main method of helping girls discover and enhance their self-worth is our workshops. The workshop curriculum is designed to guide the girls to discover and relate various concepts of self-worth. Workshops can be hosted anywhere, are free of cost, and can be adjusted anywhere from 2 to 4 hours.
During the workshops participants (also referred to as sparklers) decorate and fill out a Boost Book. Their Boost Book acts as a self-esteem journal for sparklers to add photos, quotes, memories, and anything else that reminds them to shimmer, sparkle and shine! In addition to the allotted time to work on their Boost Books, the Boost Books are used throughout the whole workshop in the various activities that take place. We aspire for Boost Books to be a tool that is further utilized in developing and maintaining their sense of self-worth beyond our workshops. The core of our workshop curriculum is our 5 Keys to Self-Esteem. Each key serves as its own station, and is characterized by a variety of discussions, crafts, service projects, and games.
