The purpose and mission of God’s Gift, Inc is to provide an environment for women and girls with mentoring programs, career and college preparation, while focusing on their character, leadership, and self-worth. Over the course of the last eleven years, God’s Gift, Inc has partnered with Broward County Parks and Recreation to create afterschool programs, summer camps, and 2 nightly teen programs for at-risk children and teenagers in disadvantaged areas in South Florida. This 8-week program gives participants (young women ages 12-18) an outlet to openly discuss relevant teen issues including self-esteem, healthy relationships and choices, nutrition, sexual assault, bullying, gang and violence prevention, and goal setting.
