One Million Solutions in Health and Superstar Pop Group Girl Pow-R Team Up for Charity Work to Build Resilience

One Million Solutions in Health

“The #iMatter program seeks to provide young people with skills to build their confidence, strength and resilience.”

Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 08, 2020
The superstar girl band Girl Pow-R has joined forces with One Million Solutions in Health to build resilience with the #iMatter Program. The #iMatter Program seeks to provide young people with skills to build their confidence, strength and resilience. It is a charity-driven educational workshop that will be delivered across North America.
Sponsors, educators and interested organizations and individuals can bring Girl Pow-R into their organization to deliver a workshop to young people that will expose them to a number of skills that are essential to all of us. It is essential that we each show the world that we matter and we have the tools to stand up to bad behavior from others. One of the unspoken goals of the #iMatter Program is to remove the word ‘bullying’ from our language and to replace it with a more positive and inspiring statement: #iMatter.
The #iMatter Movement emanates from the principles incorporated in the Girl Pow-R training. The Girl Pow-R program aims to provide musical training to girls in various North American cities, including singing lessons, dance classes, and performance training. While having fun and making new friends, the girls are taught to be confident in their own voices. They perform on stage, overcoming performance fright as a group, and are given the opportunity to make themselves heard, whether it’s introducing songs to audiences, or speaking at events about social causes dear to them.
Through One Million Solutions in Health, a charitable 501(c)(3) organization, the #iMatter Program builds on these principles and aims to give young people an opportunity to expand their comfort zone while remaining in a safe environment.
Girl Pow-R was formed on International Women’s Day 2017 in conjunction with the #BeBoldForChange initiative, and the group of singers, songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, and dancers have grown more popular with each passing year.
Since starting, Girl Pow-R have won a Family Channel singing competition, as well as nominations for Niagara Music Awards’ ‘Best New Group’ and a Toronto Independent Music Award. And, they performed more than 200 shows in just over two and a half years. They are signed to Canyon Entertainment Group, an artist management company and independent record label.
Girl Pow-R is also excited to be among the first-ever group of young people, or children, to be nominated for a Juno award in the Children’s Category for Album of the Year. It is a history-making moment! This follows a lot of terrific “music and television” experiences that the group has had like performing on YTV The Zone three times, and performing on TVO Kids. Girl Pow-R was on eTalk Canada, and were hand-picked to re-create the Mysticons theme song, and create the choreography and star in two music videos for the Mysticons.
