Mission Statement

The Girls Self-Esteem Program (G-SEP), is a part of the Youth Self-Esteem Program. Originally founded in Harlem by a young dancer who wanted to give something back to the community. The youth outreach program's girls branch (G-SEP) is aimed at building and maintaining self-esteem in girls. The program promotes literacy, public speaking, self-esteem and all-around excellence. G-SEP programs take a personal approach in helping girls ages 4-12 recognize and believe in their inner beauty. The program teaches girls to carry themselves with grace, dignity and respect. The curriculum includes counseling on how to cope with issues ranging from peer pressure, to body image. Girls learn Verbal Judo, how to avoid dangerous situations, and how to escape and fight back if they are in physical danger. We recently offer tutoring in subjects such as math on a very limited bases as we build funds for a more extensive mentoring and tutoring program. Each girl is encouraged to make a commitment to excel in academics, physical fitness as well as civic and social involvement.
