Enlighten + Empower + Engage

Definition of Success

Engaging in the community is very important to us. Participating in the community impacts and provides the girls with the opportunity to become vital women both personally and professionally in the communities they serve. We believe community involvement has a lasting, positive impact on society at large. Volunteering and giving back in the community enables students to acquire life skills and knowledge, as well as provide a service to those who need it most.

Uniquely Developed Programs

We teach them how to use their innate instincts to shift into their authentic selves. Girls over the age of six attend our bi-monthly That Girl is SMART Life Experiences. 

Through this program, we have identified and outlined five key areas of development for young girls: 

  1. Self-esteem development
  2. Relational development 
  3. Education
  4. Health and wellness development
  5. Leadership development

 We also address their real-life issues of the girls who have been violated sexually, emotionally, mentally, relationally, and physically, and show them how success is obtainable with the proper help. The core of our organization is centered on the positive development of girls between the ages of 6- 18 who are at-risk youth or need assistance to meet and address their emotional, core issues, and educational needs to create systemic change. 


There are many testimonies of the girls that have attended have attempted suicide because of depression, self-identity bullying, peer pressure, and home environment. We believe we can save kids from ever getting to the point of making that poor decision by:

  • Providing a tailored, safe environment – on-site and virtually- for each girl to address their specific need because we recognize the warning signs. 
  • Establishing communication to help them activate their call for help.
  • Understanding that a teen suicide attempt is a call for help is essential in preventing a completed attempt later.
  • Provide each girl if need contact information for a specialized professional who deals with mental health. 

Outstanding Volunteers and Staff

Our organization is only as successful as our girls are successful. The team of credentialed volunteers and staff members must have a passion for helping young girls overcome issues with their self-esteem and experiences of the past and help them see themselves as a whole, healed, and healthy. We all have to feel their pain and become one with their experiences to efficiently know where they are so we can help guide them to where they ought to be.  #THATGIRLISSMART
