Heal The Heart’s goal is to empower girls ages 12 – 17 in the Memphis area to meet the difficulties of young adulthood by fostering on-going relationships through small group discussions, 1:1 mentoring, and enrichment activities. By focusing on our girl’s physical, social, and emotional well-being, we can help prepare self-confident young women who have the strength and self-esteem to accomplish their goals.
In our small groups, girls will join a community of girls their age to discuss topics relevant to their age group and issues they encounter daily such as feminine hygiene and self-care, self-esteem and empowerment, abstinence and safe-sex, bullying/cyber-bullying, and academic success. One-on-one mentoring will provide girls with the opportunity to concentrate on their specific needs, goals, and build trust with a caring adult. This personal relationship will help build each girl’s self-esteem and provide a safe-space where each girl can be heard and have access to resources to help her succeed.
Twice a month, girls will also receive toiletries to provide for their personal needs such as:
- Sanitary Products
- Toothpaste / Toothbrush
- Lotion / Skin-care / Lip-care
When school is in session, girls will also be provided supplies to help them succeed academically such as:
- Notebooks / Paper
- Pens / Pencils
