How to Boost YourDaughter’s Confidence: EmpowHER!

Looking for a way to boost your daughter’s confidence? Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child in Summit, New Jersey, has announced a new, free program to do just that for middle school-aged girls. Their EmpowHER Series is for girls in grades 6-8 who are interested in learning how to take risks, push through boundaries and thrive outside their comfort zones. Through exciting interactive challenges and team building exercises, participants will explore healthy risk-taking, positive role modeling, communication skills and conflict resolution.

EmpowHER– which will be led by Jennifer Landis, Oak Knoll Associate Head of School/Upper School Division Head and Oak Knoll Upper School history teacher Nicole Johnston – was inspired by Confidence Counts, a groundbreaking program Landis and Johnston debuted in the summer of 2019 to inspire confidence in middle school girls.

Following the successful launch of Confidence Counts, Landis pointed out how the one-week program also allowed the students to gain an appreciation for supporting each other.

“One of the most compelling elements of the program, and the biggest takeaway for the girls, was the idea of both independence and interdependence,” Landis said. “This balance played out over the course of the week as students tackled both individual and group challenges and found ways of being supportive to one another.”

Landis envisions EmpowHER similarly helping the girls learn firsthand “the value of being vulnerable, failing, trying again, succeeding and learning about themselves.”
