What makes Esther's Girls different from other programs?
Our program is an early outreach and engagement program for young girls in grades 4th through 6th. While there are numerous programs for teenage girls, not many programs that exist for girls in elementary or pre-teen girls.
Where did the name "Esther's Girls" come from and why was the organization formed?
Esther’s Girls name is based on the book of Esther from the Bible. Esther was a brave and courageous young woman who helped save her family from destruction by King Xerxes. Esther relied on the favor and promises of God to recognize her talents and abilities. God gave the Founder of a vision of helping young girls realize their value and potential at an early age. Esther’s Girls is designed as effort to build confidence and self-esteem in young girls that will follow them into their teen years and throughout womanhood.
