The organization specializes in mentoring, leadership, education, business etiquette, scholarships, and providing pertinent information about exciting career options.
We aim to serve as a deterrent to gang violence, bullying, domestic violence, human trafficking, substance abuse, unwanted pregnancy and delinquent behaviors that often lead to destructive cycles in at-risk communities. It is within our mission that we accomplish our goals through the You’re Beautiful Inside & Outside, Precious Stone Mentorship, What’s Your Issue, Concepts in a BOX Leadership Film Boot Camp and DiamondsN2Coding programs.
Our programs are specifically designed to build self-esteem and confidence by encouraging our teen girls to think outside of the box. We offer scholarships to teen girls who have consistently exemplified the talent and tenacity to think “Outside of the Box.”
