To empower, nurture, rehabilitate, and uplift grieving adolescent girls through mentoring, creative arts therapy, and self-enrichment programs.


To create a haven where young ladies (11-18 years old) who have lost a parent or sibling can grieve, grow, and learn to remain grounded from adolescence to adulthood.


Afro Puffs and Ponytails is constantly searching for information about camps, clubs and organizations, and mentoring programs to provide as resources for parents and community organizers. It is our hopes that each resource provided will serve to build confidence, enhance self esteem, develop leadership skills, empower, uplift and educate our African American girls. We are not recommending these programs, but offering a starting point for you to conduct your own evaluation and research about whether a program is right for your child.
