Confidence Campaign

The Confidence Campaign is an effort designed by Dr. Janine Delaney and her daughter Erin to help girls form a strong self-identity during the critical ages of 7-9 when confidence is first developed.

This mother and daughter team will engage your girls in activities that teach body positivity, supporting peers and building self-awareness. Girls will leave the session feeling empowered and walk away with strategies for maintaining self-esteem that will help them during the teenage years.

Janine looks forward to working with your troop! To register for a session, please contact Janine Delaney.

femcho*

FREE BRACELETS * FREE PATCHES * FREE TEE SHIRT FOR TROOP LEADER

The femcho* program is developed to promote confidence, leadership, health, and fitness among girls in a fun, hip way. Our workshop consists of dance/fitness, girl talk, and a confidence-building compliment. Facilitated femcho* girl-talk is a discussion that takes place in a safe and nurturing environment. Girls reflect and bond while sharing without any judgement or criticism. The dance/fitness segment consists of easy to follow moves to the girls' favorite music.

Specific femcho* modules determine the topics discussed. The femcho* program is brought to your troop meeting location. One of our trained and experienced femcho* facilitators will come to your location. We will provide femcho* bracelets, Girl Scout patches, appropriate music, and speakers.

Over 4,500 Girl Scouts have experienced femcho* workshops. Through different modules that focus on topics such as friendship, leadership, healthy choices, confidence, compassion, fitness and power, femcho* can be adapted to achieve many Girl Scout journeys, petals, and even several Girl Scout badges. The femcho* patch is a bedazzled iron-on encrusted with Swarovski crystals. Girl Scouts have incorporated femcho to earn Silver Awards, and become mentors to earn more kinds of badges than we can name!

femcho* has had the honor of leading over a thousand scouts and troop leaders in a dance/fitness routine during the 100 year Anniversary Bridge Crossing at Randall's Island. We have also had the pleasure of offering our program at Camp Kaufmann.
