Chandelier Transformations Youth Mentoring is a Non-profit 501(c)(3) Organization founded in 2017 by Army Veteran dedicated to re-writing the narrative for women of color and the African-American community. Since inception 100% of our mentees have gone on to graduate high school and attend college.
Chandeliers Transformations Youth Mentoring (CTYM) was created to teach brown-skinned girls to embrace their individuality and live boldly and confidently in who they were created to be. We achieve this by transforming their mindsets to remove all limitations and barriers learned through family limitations, gaps in education, community, toxic relationships and social media.
CTYM aims to empower our youth with skills of self advocacy, motivation, leadership, financial literacy, employability skills and so much more to light up the path to their future and every relationship encountered along the way.
Our goal is to foster an environment for our youth to feel comfortable in their skin and empowered to be our future Trailblazers and World Leaders capable of making a more equitable environment for all to thrive. We do this by providing mentorship in Coaching, Speaking, Community Involvement, and providing Adolescent Scholarships, Civic Engagement and Social Activities with the middle school and high school female students in the Tampa Bay Area.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future and can change the world.
Chandelier Transformations Youth Mentoring (CTYM) envisions to transform the lives of teenage girls through youth-led, multigenerational spaces enriched with healthy dialogue, community-engaged education and civic engagement creating equitable environments in which our future trailblazers and innovators can thrive.
Chandelier Transformations Youth Mentoring (CTYM)'s mission is to bring together Middle School and High School girls in the Tampa Bay Area to create a strong sisterhood that empowers, motivates and uplifts them while teaching them to make a powerful impact in a global economy.
