Growth happens in the practice.

Love Progress Park was founded to fill the gap in real world leadership and life-skills for girls. Schools and sports alone cannot solve for the confidence drop in middle school girls and the performance anxiety increase in high school girls.

While leadership positions like "captain" of a sports team, "lead" in a theater production, and others indicate leadership ability worth celebrating, Love Progress Park is designed to meet girls where they are and prepare them to lead in every area of their lives through ongoing leadership skills and emotional intelligence training.

Experiencing leadership growth happens over time, and going through the process of doing the work, getting back up, and deciding to do what is right brings forth mental toughness, resilience, character, influence, and confidence.

Leading is hard.

It's not for everyone. A lot of kids will want to quit when it gets tough, and their parents will let them. We ask that you give us a chance to follow through on our end of the process.

Love Progress Park will see girls through the hard parts, and our team of experts and coaches will follow alongside the girls as guides toward their individual leadership goals and potential.

Through Love Progress Park, students, athletes, volunteers, and supporters can build meaningful relationships with friends and mentors, have fun at summer leadership projects, service and internships, and special events. Breakthroughs can happen in an instant, and transformation is possible over time.

Sign up. Stick with it. Let's see all girls live with the courage to lead!
