STARR Teen Esteem and Leadership
The STARR Leadership Programs are designed for at-risk teenage girls, ages 14-18, who may be struggling with debilitating self-esteem and confidence issues. Participation in STARR will support these young women in developing a strong sense of self, and equipping them to make healthier choices, in order to thrive academically, economically, and socially. The participating girls come from all socio-economic conditions; most whose parents cannot afford to register their daughters in such a dynamic program. Low self-worth is prevalent amongst a high percentage of teen girls, and if there is no intervention, the consequences can be serious (Dove Self-Esteem Fund – 2008). Seven in ten girls ages 15-17 believe they are not good enough; they simply do not measure up in some way, including their body images, performance in school, and in relationships. Within this population of girls we find, in large part, eating disorders, substance abuse, cutting, bullying, and early sexual activity.
- Build trust in themselves & others
- Learn to communicate more honestly & effectively with parents and others
- Overcome bullying, low sense of self, abuse or a negative event in their lives
- Develop their own self-esteem and express more confidence
- Create a higher sense of self (self-image)

To develop at-risk teenage girls to become confident, equipped, and influential leaders through participation in the dynamic STARR Life Course and teen coaching. STARR stands for Succeed through Accountable, Responsible Resolve.

Bobbi DiClaudio presents the STARR Teen-Esteem Project and Leadership Experience at Inspired Women Event!
“All it would take for the forces of evil to triumph in this world is for a few good women to do nothing.” – A paraphrase of Edmund Burke’s quote (1700’s).
More than ever, this quote is relevant today. Though the world is being confronted by evil in many ways, dedicated women are taking a stand, pushing back the dark, and doing whatever they can to make this world a better place. Debra Dion Krischke, the founder of Inspired Women Paying it Forward, is one of those amazing women. She is lighting up the world with her concept of building a women’s philanthropic networking group. The first benefactor of Debra’s ambitious program is CARTE-Child Abuse Resolved through Education, a 501C3 nonprofit organization. Bobbi DiClaudio of Pittsburgh, a volunteer with CARTE, gave a dynamic presentation on the STARR Teen-Esteem Project and Leadership Experience for teen girls, ages 14-18, to be held in Coloma, California, July 13-18 2015. Dominque Poncet (left on photo) and Bobbi will be on staff for STARR this year. CARTE is an all-volunteer organization so funds are used directly to produce STARR. CARTE believes that in today’s world women are the tipping point of peace and prosperity. These women, and those who generously donated, represent leadership in action! The teens who will graduate from STARR on July 18 will be empowered and supported by these committed models to become young women of substance … our future leaders.
