Our Journey So Far

Saturday, December 3, 2022, Felicia’s Promise hosted the 2nd Annual Holiday Benefit, a fundraiser in support of mentoring programs and workshops. An evening filled with promise, purpose, dinner, and live music. The joyous evening with over 100 guests, comprised of supporters and mentees, also included community leaders such as the Honorable Letitia “Tish” James, Attorney General for the State of New York. In addition, all of our International Mentees joined virtually, including our Mentees from Liberia, who also joined virtually from The Royal Grand Hotel under the leadership of Maisie Dunbar, Felicia’s Promise African Relations and Development Liaison.

The Promise Continues with
The Whole Girl  Workshop Series

During the 2023 workshop series, Felicia’s Promise remains dedicated to empowering young girls. We are excited to announce our series of workshops, The Whole Girl, designed to build self-esteem and promote positive self-image. Our workshops cover various topics, including health and fitness, skincare, yoga, civic engagement, environmental sustainability, art, financial literacy, and more. We aim to give girls the tools and knowledge they need to succeed in all aspects of life while promoting community and empowerment. Join us in our mission to help girls realize their full potential and become strong community leaders.
Congresswoman Yvette Clarke joined Felicia’s Promise for a women’s health workshop. Shanique Ivery, MS WHNP-BC, the Women’s Health Program Director at Felicia’s Promise, is also shown leading mentees through the My Body My Business workshop. Each bi-monthly workshop in this year’s series is hybrid to include mentees outside of Brooklyn, New York. Mentees from Virginia, Jamaica, and Liberia are also pictured participating in the workshop virtually and collaborating with in-person attendees. To become a volunteer in support of our organization, apply here.

Supporting the Promise 

By investing in Felicia’s Promise to continue building programs that support girls in these communities, we empower them by providing access to education and opportunities and investing in the next generation of leaders, innovators, and change-makers who will shape our world’s future. When girls are empowered, they can better contribute to their communities, economies, and societies, creating a more prosperous and just world for all. So, let us join together and invest in the future of our girls and, in turn, create a brighter future for everyone.
