Girl Power is a wonderful organization. I've volunteered on several projects and have seen, first-hand, the positive impact they have on the young girls they service. Some of these girls have no idea what self esteem is all about until they walk through the doors of Girl Power Programs. By the time they've been there a couple of days you see the difference in the attitude they have about themselves and they start to show respect for others. This is a wonderful organization, located in the heart of Miami, FL and I will continue to support them in anyway I can.
