Is to generate inner respect, love and self-empowerment in African American teen girls that are, or have been in dysfunctional
and/or disadvantaged lifestyles through a positive, productive and beneficial environment.
To provide guidance and information to these women and teen girls that will help them to become healthier members of our society.
Encourage them to discover their talents and pursue their goals, while securing and maintaining financial independence. Equip
them with the necessary tools for them to adjust in everyday situations and throughout their lives.
We will cultivate relationships with the teen girls through out their middle school and junior high school years, continuing the
relationship in high school ensuring that they maintain good grades, which will present them with options for higher education.
We also want to generate within these girls a feeling of inner respect and love for themselves, while learning to be self-empowered.
To engage the girls in workshops that will enhance their self image, goal setting, communication, etiquette skills, networking skills,
and leadership skills. Help the girls make choices that will produce self-assured, positive thinking. That will teach the girls
responsibility and accountability for their actions, achievements, and accomplishments.

Our Mentoring Program is designed to match girls between the ages of 10 to 18 with an adult volunteer (mentor) in a one-to-one
mentoring relationship. The program is also designed to involve the mentees in monthly group mentoring workshops and two
weekend retreat programs.
The Mentoring program is designed to increase confidence, self empowerment and focus on setting academic and career goals.
The Mentoring Program encourages emotional and social growth along with coordinating open lines of conscious dialog between the
teens and their mentors. It provides a basic structure for these relationships and a support system for the participants involved. The
program will help the mentee develop socially, because social skills will benefit the girls in other areas of her life.
A prospective mentor participates in a thorough interview with our program coordinators (the mentee goes through the same
process). The aim is to make the best match possible – pairing a mentor with a mentee sharing similar interests with the volunteer,
or whose needs match with the mentor’s skills and experience. Volunteers also provide references, and the organization may
request a criminal background check.
The initial commitment for a mentor/mentee is for one year. One-to-one meetings should be either weekly or bi-weekly. With the
emphasis on building a relationship with the mentee.
Monthly group mentoring workshops
The workshops are designed to equip girls with the proper tools to become self-aware and self-sufficient. There is nothing more
powerful than a young lady who values her self-worth. We will empower the girls by focusing on goal setting, recognizing and dealing
with emotions, mother/daughter relationships, how to effectively deal with peer pressure, etc.
The workshops will help build girls’ self-esteem and self-confidence by helping them to accept who they are personally and helping
them explore the exciting and fun ways to create their own image of who they are to become.
The workshops will promote positive health and fitness lifestyle choices by teaching the importance of exercise, nutrition, and
wellness education. From balanced diets to weight-loss, girls of all fitness backgrounds will be challenged and motivated to develop
proper exercise routines and healthy nutritional habits. The primary objective is to educate the girls on the importance of making a
lifetime commitment to their health and fitness.
• Cultural project: Designed to give them exposure to social and cultural awareness. The girls are exposed once a month to a
cultural activity- ranging from fine dining, theatrical play, or trips to museums.
• Community Project: Designed to teach the importance of volunteering and giving back to others. The girls will participate in
community projects such as visiting nursing homes, homeless shelters, green events, and other community events.
During the beginning and end of the program the mentees and mentors will attend an Empowerment retreat. The focus is on
interpersonal communication skills, leadership development and etiquette. The retreat will provide the mentees effective ways to
make positive life choices through open and honest dialogue.
