About the Program:
Girls with Purpose is a bible-based and Christian mentorship program for girls ages 12-18. The program purpose is to help girls know and understand God created them for and with a purpose. The program will help build a firm foundation for a purpose filled life through mentorship, life skills training, exposure to various community service, and faith. At GWP we teach our girls how to be accountable for their actions and learn how to foresee the consequences that are exacerbated by their choices. They learn the power of humility and assertive communication in their relationships, particularly that with their parents and peers. Girls are taught about delayed gratification and self-love in a safe, validating, and fun environment. The program includes a number of empowering and enrichment activities, but our overall goal is to help girls become prepared for a productive and purpose filled life.
GWP gives our girls the encouragement to think of themselves, not just now, but to focus on their future selves. GWP charges its young ladies to redirect their focus on their dreams and aspirations to set them on the path of fulfilling their purpose. Knowing your purpose is the first step to fulfilling your destiny. Helping our girls understand their reason for life (purpose), works hand in hand with the development of vision for their lives. Envisioning one's purpose can bring clarity of the need of change behaviors and decision-making that will align with a purpose driven life. We want this for all our girls.
Each youth will be assigned a mentor during and up to one year beyond the program’s end; if that's the choice of the youth and her family. The mentor/mentee relationship is driven by the participant’s interests and goals, and is integral to the success of the program. Girls with Purpose Mentorship Program is mentor-led and all activities focus on helping participants improve their social and interpersonal skills, self-esteem, identity, and vision for their future as they advance through their academic careers and personal growth. Each vision is unique and our mentors provide the flexibility needed to assist each young lady with her personal vision.
The program is 12-weeks held every Saturday from 10:00am-2:00pm in Miami Gardens, Florida. Each graduate who completes 85% of the program will receive a certificate of completion.
Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's PURPOSE that prevails.
