The Priceless Project meets a practical need for schools, churches, community organizations, and mental health programs. The Priceless Project provides an evidence-based curriculum and program that deals head-on with the realities our young ladies are facing on a daily basis. The Priceless Project is being used in schools from 4th grade-12th grade. The content can be adjusted to the age group and is transforming the classroom climates for those that teach it and the volunteers that help support it. See some of the comments about The Impact of the Program.
Often we underestimate the power our beliefs have on our lives. Many of us believe things about ourselves because of experiences that we have been through as children that were out of our control. Our current social climate bombards us with ideas and images that present themself as truth or reality, when in fact they are not. The Priceless Project shines a light on the lies that we have internalized about ourselves. The program is created to help girls sift through the current messages of society and identify truth. The truth about themselves and the truth about others. Supremely, that we are Priceless!
"What I saw was an immense need for love and approval and the tremendous desire to feel valuable. It was during this year in Colorado, that I felt the mission of my life was given to me. My life no matter where, or when, or how, was to be about keeping young women "Pure". The word "Pure" means: "free from contamination." Everywhere women turn, something or someone, is telling them they are "not enough" and if they were only "prettier, smarter, skinnier, bigger, shorter, taller, richer, ...more;" then we would be worthy of love. My goal and mission is to combat these lies with truth. My desire is that girls and women of all ages would embrace their infinite value, see with their own eyes their unrivaled uniqueness, and discover the gift they are to the World!"
- Emily French, Founder of The Priceless Project
Meet Emily French, mother of 3 boys, and the heart behind it all. Emily received her Masters in Human Relations from The University of Oklahoma in 2013. She did her Master's research on psycho-educational programs for girls. The goal of The Priceless Project is to partner with organizations who have access or provide services to girls. Our desire is to provide resources and curricula that deal with issues that directly affect girls in the current social climate.
The Priceless Project started in Bartlesville, Oklahoma where Emily French founder and creator, launched MUTUAL Gold for MUTUAL Girls Club of Bartlesville in 2014. The vision had been planted in Emily's heart 9 years previous when she was working for an after-school program in Fort Morgan, Colorado in 2005-2006. In this town of 11,000 people, the high school was building what the students were calling a "baby barn". This was the district's attempt to solve the teen pregnancy epidemic.
