Daddy’s Diamonds is a community awareness and mentorship program whose mission is to inspire and empower all girls involved to be strong, smart, and bold “thru” life changing programs and experiences.
Daddy’s Diamonds will influence one another, their peers, and their community with tolerance and friendship. Our strategy is to show them how to discover their own inner strength and self-worth thus promoting positive self image and respect for their own and other’s cultural identities. We will implement a comprehensive strategy to nurture the minds, bodies, and souls of our Diamonds to be healthy and active in the community. Our target audience is girls ages 10-18 from all socio-economic, religious, and ethnic backgrounds. Through the program structure, mentor-led groups, and activity based curriculum we hope to reduce vulnerability to self destructive behaviors, develop leadership skills, and to nurture positive hopes and dreams for this generation of girls and generations to come.
Daddy’s Diamonds envisions a world where all girls have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to reach their highest potential with confidence while reaching back to pull someone else along. We realize that smart healthy girls, make smart healthy choices. We recognize that no matter where you are in the world, what cut of diamond you might be, what size, what color….You’re a diamond and all diamonds SPARKLE….
