The BLACK GIRLS ROCK! brand has a plethora of impactful pro-social programs that empower girls of color across the globe. We are committed to mentoring, enriching, and educating the next generation of young women leaders by giving girls the tools needed to develop leadership skills, improve academic achievements, refine critical thinking, promote social awareness and increase civic engagement, so that they may find their voice, define their truth, and own their agency.
Our educational and developmental pedagogies highlight teamwork and collective responsibility for emerging thought leaders and change agents. The research and testimonies acquired over the past decade also reveal quantitative data that supports our approach to education and empowerment work.
