Becoming The Best Me
Our Becoming The Best Me Summer Program is a six-week mentoring program aimed at empowering girls and young women age 12 to 18 to develop a sense of self and build life skills. With incentives for both personal and professional growth, the training sessions give girls the opportunity to cultivate talents, build alliances, and celebrate the success of their peers. These six-week workshops equip young women with life skills to be successful in:
- Self-Esteem and Confidence Building Strategies
- Financial Management
- Social and Dining Etiquette
- Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
Our team of volunteer coaches and mentors are passionate about helping at-risk youth develop skills that will allow them to progress and lead happier and healthier lives. The youth are exposed to a rewarding and fun experience over the course of the training. We look forward to future program offerings in alignment with our mission to further enable girls and young women in Brownsville, East New York, Bushwick, and Crown Heights communities.
This program is FREE. Breakfast and lunch is provided.
“T.A.L.L.O.M. Foundation is not just an ordinary non-profit organization. The Foundation and its team strive to boldly and unapologetically serve their youth, their community, in addition to those who join them as Facilitators. I have been trying to gather the correct words or representation for two months on what to share about T.A.L.L.O.M. Foundation after my experience. As one of the program facilitators, I was treated with an upscale experience from the flight in, to the hotel stay, to the exclusive New York tour! If you are truly wanting to support the efforts of an organization which is truly making an imprint in the lives of others, T.A.L.L.O.M. Foundation is the organization you need to connect with. Thank you for all that you are. I am truly honored to be part of your extended team and family. With love and true support.” – A. Margot Brisky, DiscoverHer Life Coaching, LLC.
It Begins With Me
Our It Begins With Me program is an 8-session social-emotional development program for YOUTH pre-K to 12th grade aimed at educating on the topics of social and dining etiquette.
“The students learned how to properly conduct themselves while dining and also gained life-long exposure to proper etiquette. The students completed the program with new found confidence and skills… parents watched in amazement and raved about what they witnessed. One parent shared that during dinner-time, her son would teach his siblings which utensils to use and the joy he brought to her. I’m very grateful for Ms. Charles, she left her mark in our classroom, the students and I miss her dearly. I hope I get the opportunity to work with Ms. Charles again in the future.” – Ms. Sabrina Brathwaite, Teacher at P.S.213
