MyPower, Inc. is a non-profit organization that empowers young
women to successfully navigate the teen years by making good choices,
setting goals, succeeding academically, and avoiding teen pregnancies.
MyPower, Inc. offers girls a 12-week structured empowerment and self-esteem program through our MyPower Circles. Sessions are held once a week for 2 1/2 hours after school. The program was customized from well-researched programs proven to help girls avoid issues like teen pregnancy and academic failure. We address these issues in a straight-forward and relevant manner. The sessions are facilitated by trained and seasoned women right here from Lea County.
MIDDLE SCHOOL EDITION
MyPower’s Middle School Edition is empowering 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls to reach their full individual potential by providing fun, social, and learning activities. This is geared toward preventing teen pregnancy, developing personal confidence, excelling academically, and enhancing life skills. It is a seven session, once a month program offered during Advisory/Homeroom period to all Hobbs middle school girls at Heizer, Houston, and Highland. In August 2015, MyPower expanded to Caton Middle School (Eunice). All sessions are facilitated by trained and seasoned volunteers.

“I would recommend this program for other young girls. I loved it and my daughter did too. I am so glad there is a program for our young ladies. I wish there would have been something like this when I was growing up”.
“I wish I would have had this opportunity in school. They learn so much about themselves and who they can become. They see what can be achieved when they set goals. Thank you for spending time with my daughter!”
“I would recommend this program to ALL girls. This program has opened the doors to conversations that my daughter should have had a long time ago. It made it easy to talk to about issues that she is facing and will face”.
“I would highly recommend this program because it is a forum that builds high self- esteem and gives them “tools” to rise above peer-pressure and negative influences to obtain goals in which they have set.”
“It has been very good for my child. I have 4 girls and my first born has attended. I will enroll the other 3 when it’s time.”
“She has learned to be herself and no longer is afraid of what others think about her. She knows she has a voice and she can express herself more without being afraid.”
