QUEENS, N.Y., Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Hance Family Foundation's central project, BEAUTIFUL ME ... The EAK Project, arrives today at St. Francis Preparatory High School, the largest co-ed Catholic High School in the country. BEAUTIFUL ME is a curriculum-based self-esteem program for women and girls launched by the Hance Family Foundation in 2010. The Foundation's mission is to honor the lives of three beautiful sisters, Emma, Alyson and Katie Hance, by ensuring healthy, happy and safe children through innovative self-esteem educational programming and the support of children in need.
"When we started Beautiful Me, we hoped we would maybe help just one girl," says Warren Hance Co-President of the Hance Family Foundation. "On a day like today, I am humbled to think of how many people we can reach."
Three hundred and forty-five freshmen girls will attend over three hours of self-esteem educational programming. Each lesson is designed to teach the girls how to think positively and with assurance about their bodies, their skills, and their relationships with others.
"In today's society, ninety percent of teenage girls want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance," explains BEAUTIFUL ME Co-Creator Kate Tuffy. "Through Beautiful Me, we are attempting to challenge the status quo with a self-esteem program specifically designed to educate females by promoting appreciation for their genuine qualities and accurate self awareness."
To date, the BEAUTIFUL ME curriculum has been implemented at schools, universities and in communities from New York to Boston and from Chicago to Paris, France reaching over 7,000 girls.
