WELCOME! Before you see what TOMORROW'S GIRLS & WOMEN have been up to, please visit our GIRLFRIEND GEAR Page.
There you will find hand crafted crochet dolls and other item's like the one's already sold below. Items are loving created by our founder Pat McLean-Smith, and help to fund the TOMORROW'S GIRLS & WOMEN Programs.
Founded in 2001, Tomorrows Girls a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization began as an mentoring program for girls, where the purpose was to keep young girls, teens, teachers, parents and guardians in touch with each other and the numerous community outreach initiatives aimed at helping them succeed. This was a place to share, promote and grow. Our motto is, “One Little Girl Can Change the World,” and our mission is to show every young lady in the program that they are indeed “that girl. TOMORROW’S GIRLS was and still is designed to involve the girls in an enjoyable learning while growing experiences.
At present, in addition to the TOMORROW'S GIRLS MENTORING PROGRAM (to learn more, click on the link to your left), we have embarked on the process of establishing ourselves as a organization committed to serving our entire community. Because we believe that no act of kindness is too small, and that any act of kindness can change a persons life, we are no longer primarily a “girls” program.
By providing resources for the homeless, holiday basket give-aways, toy drives, and recognizing local do-gooders, to name a few, We are now TOMORROW'S GIRLS & WOMEN.
While our digital footprint is being enhanced, our commitment remains the same. We invite you to get involved with our organization as there are many ways that you can lend a helping hand: become an advocate for giving by volunteering for our programs and events or becoming a committed mentor; spread the word about our organization to your family and friends, by participating in our social media communities; and make a donation of time and interest so that we can continue to, MAKE A DIFFERENCE: One act of Kindness at A Time!
In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, TOMORROW’S GIRLS & WOMEN and FOR WOMEN COLLECTIVE hosted UNSILENCED: Behind The Wall. A multi-genre, multi-generational gathering on Saturday, October 27, 2018, featuring guest speakers, performances, and a signature highpoint, the “Purple Passion Fashion Show.”
With the permission of the #METOO founder Tarana Burke, the program theme of UNSILENCED: Behind The Wall, was designed around her quote, "It is important to acknowledge the trauma, but even more crucial to cultivate joy."
Proceeds were donated to the Purple House Project, a non-profit organization in Delaware.
With winter upon us, the weather is already cold and will only get colder. Throughout this season TOMORROW’S GIRLS & WOMEN will distribute homeless care backpacks with essential items to help people in need and those living on the streets this winter. In addition we will offer fleece blankets and emergency (space) blankets. These NASA designed, foil-type blankets are designed to be wrapped as close to the body as possible and will hold in 90% of body heat. This can mean the difference of life or death on a freezing night
TOMORROW'S GIRLS & WOMEN,Thank You, from the bottom of our hearts, for helping us to help others. Your donations along with the help of THE AWESOME FOUNDATION has enabled us to distribute 123 BACKPACKS, so far.
Although we will still offer many of the programs and events we have in the past, we look now to serve the community as a whole. We will be working collaboratively with other organizations to create and sponsor community socials, educational and advocacy events; community celebrations; support and discussion groups; lectures, educational retreats and seminars, to build a strong network of people to support and advocate for our collective community. Emphasizing and encouraging personal growth.
It is our intent to help build a network where people can feel validation and support. We believe that by doing "WHAT WE CAN, WHERE WE CAN, WHEN WE CAN," we can help others increase feelings of belonging, connection and self esteem, and in turn, provide for a better quality of life and a broader context for healthier living.
Our mission Is to actively be of service to others as an inspirational model of living and working together to create community and social change.
We envision a community culture grounded in love: embodying compassion, honesty, self-responsibility, delight in diversity, cooperation, and the honoring of all ethnicities. This vision recognizes the interconnectedness of everyone and supports living with intention and purpose
