Bold Action That Builds Confidence

Girls are brave. Girls are bold. But today’s girls are up against challenges, unlike any generation before them.

Research shows that when girls have the support they need during adolescence, they can change the world. To celebrate International Day of the Girl, the Dove Self-Esteem Project will match all donations made to Boys & Girls Clubs of America through October 11, 2022, up to $10,000, to help more girls develop the confidence, courage and critical life skills necessary to make bold moves and build great futures.
