3D Girls Inc. is a non-profit designed to educate, empower, and advocate for young women
“3D Girls, Inc began. in the summer of 2012. After becoming a young mother, I had a vision of giving back and mentoring youth like so many people did for me. I had an amazing group of mentors, teachers, and leaders who helped me to a accomplish my goals. I started my first mentoring group of eight girls. We held our meetings after-school each week. I remember on weekends, my friends and I would pile the girls up in our cars and take the girls on adventures around the city. We took them ice skating for the first time, exposed them to fine dining experiences, and hosted a career photoshoot for them during their senior year. Upon graduating many of the girls have gone to college, joined the military and/or gotten jobs to support their families. It is fulfilling seeing them all grown up and on their journeys into adulthood.
There are three programs within 3D Girls, Inc. designed to educate, empower and advocate for young women from different demographics. The L.E.A.G.U.E. (Ladies Empowering Adolescent Girls Using Exposure) is our school-based program that provides girls K-12 with a group mentoring experiences. The T.E.A.M. Project is an outreach initiative that provides young and expecting mothers under the age of 21 with resources to help maintain sustainability. With over 3,500 diapers, wipes, blankets and other essential baby care, The T.E.A.M. Project has poured into the lives of over 150 mothers with our quarterly community baby showers and self-leadership workshops in the past two years. Lastly, The #DRIPSAtlanta Campaign has come into fruition as a means of gathering individuals to engage in group painting activities that bring awareness to social and emotional wellness. We are able to raise money for our outreach programming from the activities while simultaneously mobilizing mental health resources.
As the organization has grown over the years, it has been a powerful transformation! We are looking forward to securing 4-5 new board members within the next year to serve; helping to build our fundraising efforts, marketing and branding initiatives and securing space for a community outreach center. Our work with our mentoring, teen parenting and STEAM initiatives will continue to operate year-around to educate and empower the community.”
