Black Girls Rock! is a non-profit youth empowerment and mentoring organization established to promote the arts for young women of color as well as encourage dialog and analysis of the ways women of color are portrayed in the media.
Since 2006, Black Girls Rock! has been dedicated to the healthy development of young women and girls. Black Girls Rock! seeks to build the self-esteem and self-worth of young women of color by changing their outlook on life, broadening their horizons and helping them to empower themselves. For the past five years, we have enjoyed the opportunity to enrich the lives of girls aged 12 to 17 years old through mentor-ship, arts education, cultural exploration and public service. At Black Girls Rock!, young women are offered access to enrichment programs and opportunities that place special emphasis on personal development through the arts and cooperative learning.
