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.
The LITeration project runs throughout the school year. This reading program focuses on financial literacy. Teaching students how to prepare for adulthood with knowledge of basic finance. This program focuses on savings, credit building, stocks, bonds, investments as well as long-term and short-term financial goals. We dissect books like The Richest Man of Babylon by George S. Clason. Each week we'll learn how to save and build our credit as well as make long-term and short-term investments. Space is usually limited. Subscribe to our newsletter for upcoming registrations.
Our Virtual Reading Village runs throughout the school year. Dear Black Girl works closely with young ladies (virtually) and we connect through literature.

Each exciting new week will turn the page to reveal new discussions, interactive activities, and on the spot mentoring. Space is usually limited.
