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.
What I saw was a horrendous 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!
