Confident Girl Mentoring Program Inc. (CGMP) was founded in 2016 in Buffalo, NY. Confident Girl Mentoring Program, Inc. is an elite 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that utilizes evidence based interventions to empower and build confidence in young girls 7-19 in New York State. Our mission is to embody developmental strategies and workshops that take students on a journey to self-discovery and development. The program works to promote feelings of self-confidence and self-worth in those who might otherwise feel marginalized while understanding the importance of taking care of the mind body and spirit.
Since its inception, CGMP Inc has reached over 1,000 youth who are often living in or below the poverty level and are often the ones who have some of the greatest needs! CGMP, Inc has forged strong partnerships with the Buffalo Community. We provide girls with an opportunity to transition into healthy adolescents who can realize their individual potential around critical developmental tasks related to sexuality.
Our vision is to continue to be an advocate for our community, promote cultural diversity and encourage our future leaders to embrace all aspects of their social identities.
