This #GivingTuesday we count with your support to raise $10K to help us towards bringing Shine Mentorship Program to one more school in the Tampa Bay Area and build two classrooms for impoverished children in Brazil.
What started as a nine-week program at coffee shops and community centers five years ago is now a year-round free afterschool program.
Because of our community's support, over 70 girls are part of SHINE in 2019 and over 300 have been impacted by it in the past five years.
During our program teenage girls are taught about their intrinsic value, their strength, and their purpose.They learn about decision-making and are offered an atmosphere where they can listen to each other and learn from one another.
We are a social network for them BUT in REAL LIFE as opposed to online where the lines between reality and fantasy are blurred.
Each week they are introduced to a new topic that challenges and empowers them to become influencers and agents of change within their circle of influence.
On October, 2019 we began a pilot Shine Program with 160 children at risk in Brazil. These kids are being taught that, despite the reality they are growing up in, they too are worthy, strong, and have a purpose.With your help, we can continue to impact the lives of more kids in our community and internationally.
Your donation on Giving Tuesday will help us bring SHINE to one more school in the Tampa Bay Area and build two classrooms to impoverished children in Brazil.
No donation is too big or too small. You can donate any amount of choose from one of the suggested amounts.
