Growing Up in Today’s World is Confusing and Frightening.  We promote positive self-esteem.

Inspiring Girls’ Hope is a program for transitioning female youth.  Structured Tea Times provide a fabulous experience of discovery for girls ages 13 to 17. The Mission’s innovative Inspiring Girls’ Hope Program serves as an empowering support program for girls to conquer the world's challenges head-on.  It provides a safe and nurturing experience for girls to begin the process of exploring who they are and what they can do.  Our annual tea time event is enjoyed by all girls in a beautiful atmosphere of love and support; the food is delicious, and the adult facilitators are inspirational. View Inspiring Girls’ Hope Flyer Being a girl today is both complicated and fun.  They are told one day it is possible to be the future leader of the nation, recognized for world-wide achievements in sports and science. Then they also feel they need to be portrayed as sex objects while still a teenager, because that’s what the media says her role-models are into. The many mixed messages today’s urban girl receives has her feeling a little lost and very confused; when young girls already have a hard time trying to figure out who they are.  Increased negative peer pressure and media influence contribute to a girl being diverted from fulfilling her academic potential, community service responsibility, and her walk with high moral standards.
