When I launched PBY Inc. in 2013, I had this vision of empowering girls to be confident, to know their worth, and know they were created with purpose. Starting with our first cohort of 5 girls, to increasing the numbers as the months went by, I noticed one thing; our girls were walking away knowing their worth, and purpose, but weren't confident in their academics, leaving them unsure of their future.
The deeper we got into working with girls from across DC, MD, and VA, the more we realized what was needed: a program that would provide girls with all the tools needed to succeed in college, career, and life.
We introduced academic tutoring into our after school program because we wanted our girls to be confident in the classroom and guaranteed admission into college.
We started the Influencer's Club because girls from underserved communities deserve to have access to women who are thriving in their careers.
PBY Inc. is more than a girls program. We exist for girls to realize that they can and they will reach their fullest potential. By simply providing resources to a child who comes from an impoverished community, their chances of succeeding in the future increases.
