Black and Brown Girlhood & Self Love

Black and Brown Girlhood & Self Love

Future Is Now (FIN) is a mentoring programming bringing Black and Latina girls (ages 9-12)  from the Durham area to Duke for mentoring to empower them through self-esteem building activities and equip them with life skills.

 

Learning Positive Affirmations: in the most recent FIN program the girls learned the definition of positive affirmations and created affirmations of their own.
