Our Vision

To provide a network of support for women and girls in underrepresented communities. Our mentoring program promotes self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and leadership for improved mental health and confident living. As a result, our mentees acquire knowledge and resources to overcome predisposed social, psychological, and environmental adversities.

Our Mission

To support, educate and empower women and girls ages 12-24 in underrepresented communities. We believe in the transformative power of mentorship. Each female mentee is mindfully matched with a female mentor who guides the mentee through our leadership, social-emotional, wellness, and life skills curriculums. Our program supports the mentee’s life aspirations, encouraging them to explore their unique talents and abilities to develop their full potential. When given access to the appropriate resources, young women and girls are empowered to go for the “GOLD” in pursuit of their dreams.
