Dear Black Girl is designed to teach, love, and empower disenfranchised youth. Through mentorship, after-school programming, and community engagement activities. We provide youth ages 12-21 with the opportunities to improve their social, educational and professional lives.
We envision a community that allows youth to rise to their full potential through having access to all the resources they need. We believe all youth deserve a village of individuals assisting them to pursue their dreams and pushing them to be the best version of themselves.
We are a nonprofit dedicated to empowering disenfranchised youth with a focus on young ladies. Encouraging them to pursue their dreams. Inspiring them to be the best version of themselves. Creating a sisterhood where we dedicate ourselves to uplifting one another.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals & help so many children. You are appreciated, Thank You!
I am a proud mother, sister, and friend. Born and raised in Harlem by way of The Bronx. Awarded a Master's Degree in Health Administration which has been but a small tool with relevance to the work that I do; within the very communities I played in as a child. Instilled in me is the firm belief that it takes a village to raise one child and we should all strive to be who we needed when we were younger.
I am a Black Woman that once was a little black girl. Wishing I had someone to teach me how to love myself. Someone to teach me about my black hair and how to take care of my black body. I dreamed of having the same resources as kids who lived in other parts of the city. Growing up, I realized that so many of us Black Women share very similar stories and the world views us harsher than others. We deserve better than that.
I made it my mission and the mission of Dear Black Girl Incorporated, to teach, love, and empower young girls and black youth. All this is possible through the following:
All focused on the overall physical, mental, and emotional well-being that will lead to the self-preservation of Black Girls.
Strengthening Sisterhood. Raising Queens.
