TOMORROWS GIRLS MENTORING PROGRAM
to learn more
Thanks for your visit. Hope to see you soon
Founded in 2001, Tomorrows Girls began as an mentoring program for girls age 7-14 , where the purpose was to keep young girls and teens, teachers, parents and guardians in touch with each other and the numerous community outreach initiatives created to help our youth succeed. This was a place to share, promote and grow.
However, although the TOMORROW'S GIRLS MENTORING PROGRAM (to learn more, click on the link to your left), is still a very vital part of our organization, we have since then began to establish ourselves as a vital organization in our community. And 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.
We are now
Please pardon our appearance. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. We are in the process of having our website completely redesigned so that we can effectively convey our mission, share the success stories of our programs and showcase our empowering community.
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!
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
TOMORROW’S GIRLS & WOMEN believe's that no act of kindness is too small, and that any act of kindness can change a person’s life.
We recognize that the most important factor in our success is our relationships with the communities we serve. We emphasize and encourage personal growth: safety and trust, compassionate communication, and self awareness. We aim to build social connections and a sense of community with planned activities geared towards senior citizens, young girls ages 7-14, single mom’s, homeless shelters, working parents, etc.
