Building a Better Future

SweetsGirlz empowers youth in the  area to reach their fullest potential through a peer mentoring program. We care about our girls, and providing them with a peer or big sister mentor helps to provide the support and guidance for the young girls in order to make good transitions through middle and high school.

Mentoring  guarantees a young person that there is someone who cares about them. This is one of  a number of enrichment programs to help shape their identity. Learn more about becoming a peer or big sister  mentor today.


Making a Difference One Child at a Time

Our Fundraising Opportunities are designed to collect the resources needed in order to provide the young ladies with all the tools they need to be great leaders of tomorrow.

Our Fundraising events are used to increase visibility and support for our organization as well as raising funds to support our mission and programs.


Shaping the Leaders of Tomorrow

Sweets Girlz is actively  contributing to the development of our younger generation.

Our Educational Workshops are centered on instilling strong values into our youth and provides a space for them to be themselves, expand their mind while meeting new and interesting individuals.
