About

What We Do

Did you know that a girl's self-esteem decreases by 30% by the time she turns 8? Depending on a child's circumstances, girls may never get this confidence back before entering into their teen years. Sand Sisters LA is a youth empowerment nonprofit designed to give girls the tools to build a strong sense of self. By being a consistent dedicated safe space after school, tween girls are encouraged to set and achieve goals, work well with others, manage emotions, self-reflect and build positive self-esteem. Our mission is to make every girl feel seen, valued and heard.™ The Girl Powerful philosophy & curriculum is based on social-emotional learning and is endorsed by L. Edmondson Ed. D.

With this fundraising campaign, Sand Sisters will be implementing their Girl Powerful program in underserved areas by providing socio-emotional learning curriculum to help girls build self-esteem, move their bodies and find value in female unity. 

Co-founders Tedi and Sonya have positively impacted over 1,000 girls in Los Angeles through after school enrichment and mentorship. Please join in supporting this amazing grass root nonprofit who's mission is to make all girls feel seen, valued and heard.

- Sand Sisters is a dedicated safe space where tween girls are encouraged to set and achieve goals, work well with others, manage emotions, self-reflect and build positive self-esteem.
- 100% of Sand Sisters say they feel comfortable sharing their feelings and showing their true self in class.
