Frequently Asked Questions:
WHY DO YOU ONLY WORK WITH GIRLS?
Statement Junky Inc. recognizes the unique challenges that girls face and is committed to providing programming that helps compensate for these gender inequalities. While society's expectations affect both boys and girls, studies show that girls are more disadvantaged by them. Gender-specific programming lets girls focus on their real interests, at their own pace, free from distractions and comparisons.
WHY IS STATEMENT JUNKY NEEDED?
Imagine a community where all of our girls are safe, healthy, thriving, and ready to realize their full potential. Much has changed over the years, but growing up to be a healthy, confident, and independent female continues to be a daunting task. For hundreds of girls facing social and economic challenges, Statement Junky Inc. provides the safe space, the encouragement, and the subject matter they need in order to envision a brighter future as a change agent in her community and abroad.
HOW DOES A GIRL GET INVOLVED IN STATEMENT JUNKY?
The primary outlets for Statement Junky programming are our Make A Statement Conference, Monthly workshops, Leader University, and the Passport Queen cohorts. With your support and contributions, we will be able to educate, empower, and inspire girls nationally via our online platform and app.
WHAT AGES ARE THE GIRLS IN THE PROGRAM?
Typically, participants we serve are in high school and within their first year in college, ages 13 - 19. Phase two of our launch to the online space will be to offer our programs to middle school girls.
HOW MUCH DOES THE PROGRAM COST?
The Passport Queen program is free for all eligible girls and young women of color.
