Girls 101 is here to serve and mentor young girls so that they can go and be a shining light in the world. Here are some lovely words from the Girls 101 community and the difference they have seen by being a part of this organization. 

- Emily, volunteer

"Holly and her helpers provided a foundation that will last a lifetime with my students. She provided activities that met the girls where they're at and moved them to be better friends, daughters, sisters and students. The students made comments like, "I have gone to school with the other girls but didn't really get to know them until now. I know how to be a better friend and better person now, and I loved the hands on activities- we never get to do things like this."

 

- Dianna, public school teacher

“Girls 101 has shown me how important it is that we pour love into the younger generation. These girls want someone who understands what they are going through. And it’s a blessing to be speaking into their lives and showing them God’s love.”

“I love the community that Girls 101 builds. It’s great to get to know girls and see how diverse we are but find common ground too! Girls 101 is a celebration of individuality!”

"Holly Tumpkin is a fantastic source of information on raising young women. I've taught, pastored and hung out with all 3 of her daughters and they are each very different but each phenomenal. In addition, her workshops are engaging, relevant and just plain fun (for girls that is). I highly highly recommend her!"

-Josh, junior high youth pastor

"I was thankful that my daughter was not only encouraged to look for healthy relationships with positive qualities but she also learned that she needs to be a friend with positive qualities. I was thankful that Holly covered how to stand up for someone when they are being targeted and how to disarm difficult situations. Having the opportunity to role play friend situations at Friendship Camp empowered my daughter to be a leader and make right choices when she needs to."

 

-Kacy, Mom

“Girls 101 has played a huge role in helping me form the woman that I have become today. From elementary school to college years, I’ve grown up surrounded by likeminded girls, and wonderful women who have inspired me to live a holy and pleasing life. Girls 101 taught me vital life lessons about being a role model in this crazy world. I learned to be the light in a dark room, to stand apart from the crowd, and that the best way to lead is by example. Now as a young adult with my own life and career, I’m able to live out the lessons and values I learned from Girls 101, and impart some of the teachings into the lives of the children I’m with everyday.”

 

- Kasey, participant who became a teacher

"I felt safe and loved here."

 

"It helped to get all the negative stuff out of me"

 

"I learned to be a better friend."

 

"I learned not to label people."

 

"I don’t want to be labeled."

 

"I learned I had power I didn’t know I had."

 

"I wish we could do this all year."

“Girls 101 was the first place I really felt accepted in a group. This club taught me how to deal with tricky social situations most teenagers experience and how to love and support women instead of tear each other down. Girls 101 has impacted my life so much. I don’t know what I would have done without it during middle school and high school. I’m still friends with people who were involved and we still talk about the fun stuff we did together.”

 

- Jenny, participant

“Girls 101 helped me through many awkward stages of life, from advice to just knowing that other people go through the same things! I have life long friends I made in the group that mean the world to me as well, nothing beats that!”

 

- Karianne, participant who later became a volunteer

“I loved meeting all the girls and getting to know them. I really liked the discussions and games we played. It’s good to talk about how we feel. It was also great to pray together.”
