Swirls for Girls is a diversity group based out of Los Angeles that brings girls of all flavors together to support and inspire each other through culturally diverse and interactive education, mentorship, friendship and activities.
Swirls for Girls meets once a month for interactive educational presentations, community service or to hang out in sisterhood. Our primary goal is to give girls a forum to talk to other girls with commonalities where they are encouraged to discuss their feelings associated with their perception of self image and to share experiences.
· Girls (ages 6 – 16)
· Jr. Mentors (ages 13 – 16)
· Mentors (ages 17+)
Check out our first Swirls Girls Conversation with Katrina Jo Balbuena, Sibley Scoles featuring Saweetie.
Swirls for Girls has compiled a list of resources to encourage self-education and healthy dialogue. In order to be effective allies in the movement to dismantle racism in our society we must be informed.
