A long-time home builder, founder Elaine Hamel realized that introducing girls to this non-traditional activity went beyond teaching them a skill to teaching them to use their inner power tools of strength and courage. In the decade since its inception, Girls at Work has reached more than 5,000 girls through camps and classes. While building projects such as bookcases, birdhouses, sheds, and tables, girls are empowered to meet real-life challenges such as abuse, neglect, parental incarceration, or poverty.
“Our mission has been to empower inner city girls who struggle with little support in their lives. The experience of placing power tools into the hands of young girls opens a door to the limitless potential and power that inherently exists in each one of them, despite the challenges they face. The experience allows young girls to soar to new heights and alter the powerless lens through which they view themselves. They begin to see themselves as powerful and capable!” Hamel says. “Groups like LMC help us bridge the gap and enable us to reach these young girls with a powerful experience. Together, we build stronger girls and women and together we can, and will, change the world.”
The LMC Group chose to donate to Girls at Work because of the important and innovative work they do with girls. As a woman-owned business, LMC strives to support women and girls in the community. Giving back is part of LMC’s core values, and #GivingTuesday was a great way to involve the entire organization.
“We founded our company with the mission of empowering small-business owners by providing them with resources, training, and access to experts to help them succeed,” says founder Kristen Carroll. “We are a values-driven organization, and when we were trying to select an organization to sponsor this Giving Tuesday, Girls at Work was an immediate fit. They are also an organization focused on empowerment, training, resource sharing, and growth, but they are providing these tools and resources to young girls and women in need. We set a challenge to our team to give to Girls at Work this holiday season, and we were thrilled to reach 90 percent participation. I’m so proud of my team, and we all share in the blessing of giving to a great organization that makes the world better, one life at a time.”
