Resilience to Overcome Opposition thru Truth
Everything we do is to rewrite and represent the social and internal narrative about the character, capacity, and intrinsic value of black girls in order to improve their
Cultural Awareness, Self-esteem, and Experiences in Society.
WHY should people care?

The financial pull on taxpayers’ dollars will decrease due to a reduction in teen pregnancy, abortions, juvenile delinquency, school dropouts, suicide, and depression. Black girls need culturally specific care because the black girl, more so than any other girl of color, has a unique cultural history resulting in a higher tendency for adverse experiences.
WHAT does CLIC for Girls programs and services provide?
A program called The CLIC for Girls Academy, which opens admission annually, with certificate of completion provided at the end of each year. The academy is for 1 to 3yrs. We provide the skills and tools that build positive self-worth, enabling the participants to act with courage to overcome challenges and to recover quickly from difficulties.
“Fears are educated into us, and can, if we wish, be educated out.”
