How it all started!

Welcome to Raisingurls To Women!

Raisingurls are a group of teen gurls that I started back in 2006 where we would all meet at my home every 2 weeks along with my Assistant Ms. Kiki. We would talk about the issues that plague today’s youth, we also  learned that more than a few of these gurls were going through some serious issues with self-esteem. That was the year I can say that the gurls really got to bond. In Nov of 06 we got together and had a hotel party. It was there that they experience  racism first hand. It was a learning experience for me as their Leader, and for them as well.

We also had the chance to see several movies together as a group, and dinner . We feed the Homeless for Thanksgiving, and listened to a speaker who wanted to share their story of having a baby young. The first year we started off with 7-10 gurls, from there as word of mouth spread through friends and the neighborhood, we grew to have over 31 gurls in one meeting. In April of 2009  we changed our name from Destiny to Raisingurls to Women. Due to unforseen circumstances, we were unable to meet this year at my home. However, we have a site on Facebook where we keep in touch on-line, and now here on WordPress.

We will start our meeting  up in my home starting in April 2011.
