What We Do!
Girl 2 Goddess Mentoring (11-17 female)
We partner with schools and organizations to provide fun and inactive in-school programs to create safe havens to inspire girls to share stories, heal and learn the value of self-love, self-respect and self-discipline.
The girls learn the principles of femininity via a self-help curriculum using mediums of art, culture and fashion, creative writing and journaling, music, poetry, culinary arts/cooking and martial arts to display to encourage nature in which they were created.
These programs are designed to turn high-risk behaviors into modest conduct to prevent abuse, neglect and disrespect of self and from others. Classes are offered once per week to 6-8th grade and/or high school girls (9-12) and can be catered to fit your organization’s needs.
How To Give Birth To God Community Baby Shower
(formerly How To Birth To Greatness Community Baby Shower)
Mission Statement: To lower the maternal-infant mortality rate of low-income and at-risk girls through education, and increase family self-sufficiency by providing resources, financial and entrepreneurship literacy, and the keys to building healthy relationships and strong families.
Did you know that a Nation Can Rise No Higher Than Its Woman? And where there are no decent women, there are no decent men? Did you know also that men are the maintainers of women and children? And if a man doesn't know who he is or what his goals are, he cannot attract the proper woman to help him meet his/their goals for the family.
According to the CDC, although birth rates (per 1000) for females aged 15-19 declined in 2019 from 2018, the birth rate for black girls is still significantly higher. In fact, it is more than double that of their white counterparts:
"Although reasons for the declines are not totally clear, evidence suggests these declines are due to more teens abstaining from sexual activity, and more teens who are sexually active using birth control than in previous years. 2019, the birth rates for Hispanic teens (25.3) and non-Hispanic Black teens (25.8) were more than two times higher than the rate for non-Hispanic White teens (11.4). The birth rate of American Indian/Alaska Native teens (29.2) was highest among all race/ethnicities."
Girl 2 Goddess' focus is on girls (11-17) and we promote and teach abstinence and prevention as the first line of defense. However, we understand that nature takes more often than we care to admit. This coupled with broken homes and a lack of activities for youth, is a recipe for premarital sex and unwanted pregnancies.
We do NOT condemn or belittle the adult parents of our youth. We are a line of support for them. Why? Because after assessments, we learn they too are in lack, overwhelmed, and may not have the necessary tools and/or resources to even offer their children.
We place great emphasis on girls/women because she is the first doctor, nurse, and teacher of children. Mother is God until the child grows to learn and know who God is on their own.
The How To Give Birth to God Community Baby Shower is designed to support young girls, young dads, and their adult parents with unique classes designed to inspire, motivate and support.

Conflict Resolution Workshops and Mother and Daughter Mediation
Conflict and miscommunication is the root cause of dysfunction in relationships. Usually, in a conflict, there are two conflicting parties, and a third hand (unknown person) involved. This third hand is the person who instigates and triggers events to start or keep up a conflict.
As women and girls, we must be equipped with tools to prevent or reduce conflicts within ourselves, with family or friends, in marriages, among peers at school or at work, and MOST IMPORTANTLY between mothers and daughters.
Our goal is to find the root cause of the conflict, develop workable solutions and obtain basic agreement from both parties involved in the dispute. The mediation is delivered in a private or open-forum format using group support. The meeting is confidential and is a safe haven for all parties.
Our trained mediators love to serve, have good character, use rational thinking, and have good listening skills. In matters involving men and boys, such as domestic disputes, we partner with trained male mediators to bring balance to the discussion.
We desire and want to make our neighborhoods a decent place to live.
