2018 Back to School Drive 

SELF Inc. is a nonprofit organization that provides a cultural rite of passage program which encourages adolescent girls of color, to embark on a journey of self-discovery and sisterhood. Our holistic program gives young girls an opportunity to explore their purpose, talents, beliefs and goals so they can reclaim their “truth” and break hold from limitations and labels that are created by society.

  Our partners

SELF’s dynamic cultural Rites of Passage program leads girls through the journey of self-discovery so they can transition into adulthood with a fuller understanding of themselves, the gifts they possess as a woman and how it relates to real life experiences. They will have the opportunity to explore and challenge global perspectives on racial and gender identity issues as they relate to women of color.

What is Beauty? There is no standard for beauty. It can be defined in different ways because we all exemplify beauty in our own way. We challenge you to define your own beauty by posting a SELFie along with a comment that describes one of the many beautiful things about you on one of our social media sites, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Be sure to #SELFSelfieChallenge

Donate in consideration of the SELF Selfie Challenge to assist helping girls of color discover the beauty  they have within.

If you would like to make a positive difference in a girl’s life, sign up to be a mentor. Fill out the below inquire form to receive more information on becoming a SELF mentor.
