Gloria D. Daniels

Founder and President

Through research based programming and long-lasting gender specific relationships in safe environments, we empower and encourage youth, particularly girls ages 6-18. We focus on the positive development of their minds, bodies, and spirits. Our razor sharp focus on girls is significantly important because every day girls are bombarded with negative images that vie for their attention and self-esteem whether through mainstream media, social media networks or general under currents of society. ​In too many instances they are also not being challenged or encouraged to dream big and step outside of the conformities of what they see on television. Now, more than ever, girls and particularly black girls, need to know and believe that they are valuable and that their lives matter. While we can't solve all the challenges girls and young women face, we are excited about being instrumental in offering opportunities and experiences that assist in changing the paradigm. We are excited about inspiring them to believe in themselves and embracing the belief that they can indeed make a positive difference in our world.
