It just so happens that confidence contributes to success just as much as competence. So, it’s not surprising, that despite making some great strides, women are still largely underrepresented in positions of power. The good news is that with work, confidence can be acquired - and the gap, in turn, can be closed. Our aim at OGR is to instill in each of our campers the growth mindset she needs to succeed. Potential can be greatly affected by the perceptions girls hold about themselves.
A belief that intelligence and talent are something we are born with and cannot be changed can negatively impact learning and growth. In a growth mindset, girls believe that through perseverance and hard work, knowledge and skills are things that can be developed. A girl with a growth mindset enjoys learning and looks forward to a challenge.
Omaha Girls Rock is focused on developing the self-efficacy of young girls in our community. We achieve this via the intellectual & emotional challenges presented by music and creativity. Our programming creates a uniquely supportive environment where the focus is primarily on process/effort, rather than on results.
Growth Mindset means saying “I CAN if I TRY.” At Omaha Girls Rock, we believe in this message to foster positive self esteem, communication & future thinking.
