Leadership

Leadership Programs utilize  ‘sister teams’ with a focus on projects that teach leadership skills.  Through this effort, girls will build positive relationships, explore personal strengths and gain self-confidence.

Mirror Reflections

Through the use of role models, and teaching women’s history, Nuturing Hearts works to educate young  girls on the strength of the human spirit.

Self-Esteem

We utilize round table discussions and support classes to review and give guidance concerning numerous peer pressure issues, such as premarital sex, drug/alchohol abuse, teen pregnancy, dropping out of school, smoking, and education on recognizing physical and emotional abuse.
