Girls Breaking Boundaries has benefited greatly from The JNP Project. Just one year ago, the girls of Girls Breaking Boundaries were shy, soft-spoken girls. Those girls are now speaking up and speaking out, and, undoubtedly, Dona and The JNP Project has been pivotal in this growth. The girls look forward to Dona’s visits, as she is a positive force in shaping who they are becoming. She shares the themes of truth and kindness though The JNP books, guiding the girls to develop a strong sense of self. And with new Girls Breaking Boundaries members this year, I am excited to see their growth with Dona’s support and proud that current members will mentor the new ones.

IMG_1845IMG_1835“Hi Dona, It was a pleasure to post some of our acts of kindness to your site. I found your project through twitter, and then jumped onto your website to download the boomerangs. I would love some books for my school, in particular one for my class. The kids would love it!

The boomerang it is a lovely initiative and will ultimately continue to be woven into discussions and work with my class. We could especially connect with the idea of a boomerang – being Australian’s!”

 Thanks again,

IMG_8083-GRopu“Dona visited Girls Breaking Boundaries at Bates Middle School—a group for building confidence and self-advocacy in middle-school girls. Sitting in a circle, Dona had an energetic conversation with the girls about embracing their inner awesome. When she shared, “I am. I can. I will.,” normally reserved girls shouted and jumped from their seats to share words to describe themselves, like “confident,” “intelligent,” and simply, “me.” The JNP Project encouraged these quiet girls to be comfortable in their own skin and share their inner awesome with others. The girls can’t wait to learn more about Jake and Jane—and themselves. Thank you again for coming and for ALL you are doing for our youth.”
