bench·mark: A standard or point of reference against which things may be compared or assessed.
Launched in July of 2013, Be the Benchmark exists to empower teens to stop measuring themselves against other people, and instead go out and BE the benchmark by working hard, excelling at their passions and being the go-getter that makes things happen.
Benchmark Girls Mantra: Choose your thoughts, Create your life, Change the world.
Founder Erin Tarr has been working with pre-teen and teen boys and girls for over 15 years in a mentoring capacity and is now formalizing the process through Benchmark Academy and Benchmark Coaching.
Erin tailors time honored leadership and self-development resources from the business world to meet the social, emotional and development levels of the teenage population, setting them up for a life-long trajectory of success. She meets each teen exactly where they are at, giving them the tools to develop stronger relationships, manage and invest their time wisely, recognize their gifts, talents and strengths, learn how to contribute to the world around them, and even make money in the process!
