Our Mission

Elevate Her

More than ever, youth are niche targets to powerful influences around them. From multi-million dollar advertising conglomerates to magazines, internet and social networking publications, to thousands of youth-driven service marketing professionals ranging from youth programming, fashion and leisure, to tobacco companies wanting their “healthy-set of lungs.” From peers, teachers and ministers to their own blood relatives and friends, youth are emotionally unprepared to confront the forces that are constantly attacking their sense of being and belonging..

Whether rich or poor, caucasian, black, hispanic or asian, educated and not, today’s youth are being purposely pursued, enticed, tempted and corraled from every level of existence and by forces in and outside their conscious control.

As a result, youth are flagrantly swaying between uncertainty, insecurity, despair, defeat, frustration, anxiety, dissillusionment, apathy, senselessness, and a detached disregard about themselves, their possibilities, their life and their future.

From increasing national crime involving youth victimization, gun violence, drug use, teen-age pregnancies, rising sexual disease, growing homelessness, poverty, self-sabotage and suicide, our youth need to know there are options and solutions to help them uncover and realize their possibilities for creating meaning, shifting paradigms, experiencing completely different realms of being, and choosing alternatives to their self-defeating behaviors and interpretations of the issues they are confronted with.

Without the critically targeted, self-development education and foundational skills combining practical learning, our youth will continue being confused on life at a time when they should just be starting to dream about their rising and endless possibilities for success.


Our program is dedicated to building self-esteem from the inside out in girls ages 11-17. We recognize the importance of crushing the ill-effects of low self esteem. The Club not only provides basic life skills such as leadership, etiquette and image, it also provides cultural experiences, helps teens deal with peer pressure, addresses personal development and the value of diversity. Together, we can ensure better odds for future generations of women.

Our Mission

Is to provide a very intimate small group mentoring and professional youth coaching club for girls enabling them direction and real-world, substantiated education that empowers them through skill, interpretation, language, mirroring, modeling and integration in pre-teen and teen girls through a positive, productive and beneficial environment.

Our Vision

To provide guidance, resources and group and one-on-one youth empowerment coaching to  girls that will help them to become healthier members of our society.  Encourage them to discover their talents and pursue their goals, while securing and maintaining financial independence.  Equip them with the necessary tools for them to adjust in everyday situations and throughout their lives.

Elevate Her is designed to give the girls positive examples in a world filled with negative onesThey meet, connect and learn empowerment and success tips from positive women role models like, WNBA Basketball Stars, Hollywood Actresses, Caressa Cameron former Miss America, and so many more positive role models in our community.  These gracious Celebrities and Friends of Ari that the girls connect with will serve as mentors and provide references and resources for the girls of Elevate Her when they need them!
Our girls see so many negative images and girl fights in the media that makes them feel inadequate and not good enough. Elevate her is a program where we leave competition, comparison among girls and all that NONSENSE at the door! We love on each other, support each other and mastermind so we can help our Sister be all that she can be, without feeling envious of her because we have our own shine to bask in!!

We also want to generate within these girls a feeling of inner respect and love for themselves, while learning to be self-empowered.

Our Goal

To engage the girls in empowerment and life skills weekend retreats and one-on-one coaching sessions with self-esteem and leadership experts that will enhance their self image, goal setting, communication, etiquette skills, networking skills, and leadership skills. Help the girls make choices that will produce self-assured, positive thinking. That will teach the girls responsibility and accountability for their actions, achievements, and accomplishments

Elevate Her – Leadership, Mentoring & Coaching Club for Girls


Our Program

Through collective support and practical encouragement, you can provide youth with firm grounding for their own flight and belief in themselves. Enabling youth with a bit of direction and real-world, substantiated education that empowers through skill, interpretation, language, mirroirng, modeling, and integration, youth will be ready to undertake today’s challenges with positive confidence in themselves. We must provide our youth with the tools and the opportunity to grow in this 21st Century Era.


Young ladies need positive affirmation, knowledge and the tools to succeed. Information is a start. Too many young ladies look to inappropriate role models to guide them. Many suffer from low self-esteem, lack confidence and look to their peers or the TV for guidance on how to act and dress. Unfortunately too often, this just worsens the problem. The more positive input that is fed to them, the more they become empowered and emboldened. A Mentoring & Leadership Club for Girls is a wonderful way to treat your girl(s) to an experience that can change their lives.
