We are excited to share feedback from a few professionals, parents and young women who have been touched by our program.
This seems like a program that would be very beneficial to all schools & communities and could be a contributing factor to building a better society.

This program is wonderful experience for girls at time when they are struggling to navigate Middle School and all the emotions that come with being a teenager. Amber creates a safe place for the girls to talk and share their thoughts.. The girls create friendships and tools to deal help them deal with their emotions.
~ Jane Troy, Valley View Middle School Teacher
Middle school girls report that they don’t want to be noticed, are embarrassed to speak up, and they have very little confidence in their abilities. The Kaleidoscope project is all about fixing that!
. Amber is not just a cheerleader for these girls; she gives them tools to use so that they can become their best selves.
Amber interacts with the girls in a way that is open, honest, and warm.. Any girl who has the opportunity to go through the Kaleidoscope project grows and becomes more confident.
Amber helps girls see how all their hurts and all the pieces of themselves fit so beautifully together to create strong, independent, confident young women.

At a recent Parent Workshop We shared and discussed particular issues and challenges we've seen with our daughters, and we all left feeling like we gained some knowledge and tools to help us going forward. A highlight for me was knowing that my concerns weren't unique to my daughter and that many of her friends' moms' were concerned about the same things. ~ Kathy, Mom to Daughter Grace, 12
The Kaleidoscope has been life changing and has taught my daughter life skills that she will be able to take with her throughout her life. Amber also taught my daughter how to set boundaries for herself and others.
The class has given her coping skills to help her during this tough stage in her life. It has also increased her self confidence. The program also helped her deal with ending friendships and has educated her on what a healthy friendship should look and feel like.
