Wonderfully Made is a program initiative that was created to counter the disparity that girls feel as they compare themselves to images. This initiative is designed for Black girls from the ages of 12 to 29 years old. The program matches girls with older girls of colour to foster positive peer mentorship and sisterhood.
Black girls are highly represented in multiple systems such as human trafficking, criminal systems, child welfare system and educational penal system. We are hoping to address these alarming statistics through our community-based program. Through research and data collection, we have learned that these special groups are often underserviced in community and public agencies. Through the programming, a cultural, holistic and strength-based approach is used to support youth and their families.
