Shine began as a nine-week program offered to girls in the Tampa Bay Area at coffee shops and community centers.
In 2018, we took a big step and began offering Shine as a year-round program at Dayspring Academy, a charter school in Pasco County, FL.
In 2019, we adapted our program to go internationally as a weapon against female oppression and femicide (the killing of women) in Brazil. Under this initiative, we have 160 impoverished children at-risk going through SHINE year-round as an afterschool program.
None of this could be accomplished without the help of our community!
Our vision for 2020 is to bring Shine to, at least, one more school in the Tampa Bay Area! You can be part of this vision by becoming a mentor, becoming a sponsor or becoming a donor!
Your sponsorship/donation is tax-deductible and we have a special program for businesses that would like to embrace Shine as part of their corporate social responsibility. If you are interested to sponsor as a business, please contact us for more information.
