One step is just step one.
Since inception, in collaboration with the IRB at Tufts University, we have been collecting and analyzing data on how the Title IX Girls curriculum is having an impact on girls and families. This data collection has resulted in Title IX Girls first manuscript.
Title IX Girls will be speaking at the American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA this November. APHA's Annual Meeting serves as the home for public health professionals to convene, learn, network and engage with peers. More than 1,000 cutting-edge scientific sessions will be presented including ours.
The presentation, titled "More than a running club: A qualitative examination of adolescents' experiences in a mental health promotion program," is based on the examination of girls' journal entries from 2012-2015. We'll be describing the process and impact on adolescent mental and physical health of integrating coping skills into an adolescent health promotion program. We couldn't be more proud.
Bringing the collective voice of girls to a broader audience has long been a dream of ours.
In their own words.
Over the past decade, thousands of journal entries have captured the impact of Title IX Girls in the words of our own members as they reflect on concepts like mindfulness, self-awareness and inner strength.

Whatever we can do to be supportive during this critical development period is invaluable. In strengthening and nurturing others, we are also strengthened, nurtured and reinforced in our own wellbeing and happiness.

I love that nobody cares about who is the fastest or slowest, and we are always cheering for each other.

Thank you for offering such a wonderful opportunity to all these girls. Emma and Kate don’t see themselves as the strongest runners, but they’ve enjoyed the spirit of the group, which is a powerful force, in my mind.
This is bigger than running.
Our vision for a world where girls can be free starts on the track and takes us all the way to the top. We’re committed to changing the world for girls by bringing the principles and learning of Title IX Girls to decision makers in law, education, media and entertainment.
