WHO WE ARE:
In 2001, Pat McLean-Smith, founder of “In The Company of Poets”, a performance ensemble, envisioned TOMORROW’S GIRLS after the group’s performances at numerous educational institutions, community organizations and events allowed her to witness the direction in which many of the young girls in our community were headed. Feeling an overwhelming need and desire to “do” something, Tomorrow’s Girls was born.
TOMORROW’S GIRLS…is a youth-based mentoring/enrichment program created to provide a positive and supporting environment for young girls by helping them develop self-esteem and living life skills using cultural and visual arts.
Our motto is, “One Little Girl Can Change the World.” We believe in teaching every young lady in the program that she can indeed be “that girl.” TOMORROW’S GIRLS is a learn-by-doing program created for young ladies, to help them better understand who they are and why they think, feel and behave the way they do. Once youth know these things about themselves, they will be more empowered to take responsibility for their actions. The program is designed to involve the youth in enjoyable learning experiences.
Over the years the program grew beyond just mentoring girls and developed into a community organization serving women and girls of all ages. Offering various programs and events. We started out as TOMORROW'S GIRLS and are now known as... TOMORROW'S GIRLS & WOMEN.
