Ms President US is a non-partisan girls’ civic leadership program, motivating and preparing young girls to become the next generation of female political leaders. In just four years, Ms President US has reached countless girls in Fairfield County and beyond, including direct involvement from more than 175 participants, 125 high school Mentors, and 20 Ms President US campaign winners. The program encourages girls to speak out about issues that are meaningful to them, and have the confidence to know they can make a difference. Give girls a microphone and hear them roar! Ms President US aspires to a future where women are equally represented in all government positions - at the local, state, and national levels. But especially - someday - in the Oval Office.
We aspire to provide the program to all girls in 4th-8th grade and their high school mentors, and their parents and caregivers are secondary beneficiaries of the program. The 8 session curriculum educates participants about how local, state, and federal government work, why it matters, and why having women in politics matters. Local elected female officials spend one on one time with the girls at the sessions and share their experiences and their motivations for running for office.
