MISSION AND HISTORY
Pretty Blessed Girls Mentoring Program was established in Fort Worth, Texas on May 28, 2013, and our first initial program meeting day with our girls was Saturday, June 1, 2013. Pretty Blessed Girls is a program of Heavenly Touched CC, a nonprofit, 501(c) 3, charitable organization that provide educational, cultural and recreational opportunities for at risk families. The purpose of Pretty Blessed Girls Mentoring program is to empower girls to feel pretty and blessed without compromising. Our mission is to bring girls together from all walks of life to create a strong sisterhood that will empower, motivate and uplift girls from all over the world.
We meet with our PBG’s every 2nd and 4th Saturday from 12pm 4pm. Our structured sessions include, but not limited to, Keeping It Real Girl Talk, PBG Activity, and PBG Live. During Keeping It Real Girl Talk the girls learn different life skills, personal development and have open discussions. Each month we have a different topic. PBG Activity is filled with arts and crafts, cooking experiences, sewing, knitting and games. PBG Nation is where the girls learn a variety of dances (Christian Hip hop, Mime, Praise dance and Step), theatre arts and public speaking.
Outside of our regular meeting days, our PBG’s serve faithfully in the community. The girls enjoy every minute of it. They serve with smiles and love in their heart. We have NEVER heard of our girls complaining about serving the community. They often ask, “When is our next Community Involvement Project?” Our girls learn something different from each project. The program encourages the girls that “They can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens them” –Phillipians 4:13.
