WE BELIEVE IN THE FUTURE OF GIRLS

Our Mission is to inspire girls to dream big and ensure they have the opportunity and resources to reach their full potential. We empower our girls to be confident, college bound and career ready to become the next generation of community leaders.

  • We encourage our girls to speak up and love their true selves.

  • We inspire our girls to dream big.
  • We provide our girls the tools to pursue their dreams.
  • We empower our girls to accomplish extraordinary feats.
  • We influence sisterhood from our PowerWomen Team to our PowerGirls.

We believe every girl has the potential for greatness and provide learning opportunities for girls that enable them to shape their future. POYT focuses on nurturing and enriching the lives of young women in Greater Harlem. We recognize Powerful girls grow up to be secure and confident women and this sets the stage for their futures as leaders and agents of change.

Education Inequality

Girls who come from low-income neighborhoods are often denied high quality education. Over 60% of girls of color are born to families living on low incomes.

1 in 4 Girls

One in four girls will not graduate from high school. In school, girls of color are two to six times more likely to be suspended than white girls, with a third to half not graduating high school at all.

Lack Of Support

Girls of color are likely to be criminalized or ignored for the trauma they’ve suffered rather than being given the support they need.

Stereotypes

A recent study revealed that adults think black girls seem older and require less nurturing and protection than white girls of the same age.

GET INVOLVED

We encourage our PowerGirls to be confident, college bound and career ready so they can become our next generation of community leaders. When we don’t prepare our girls for a bright future, we all fail. We hope you will join our mission!
