Services for Girls

Transforming lives: Reaching out to empower girls

Love n Me is dedicated to helping girls realize their full potential by tapping into their inner strength. We believe in the power of the person to do whatever their heart desires and the road to achievement starts from within. Our services are designed to bring back the confidence, self-awareness, and strength by teaching girls to love themselves. We are the gentle, guiding hand along the path of self-empowerment.

Workshops / Counseling / Support for Girls

Big Sister / Role Model – A mentor can be a powerful thing for a young girl, providing guidance and support through difficult times, answering questions about the changes they’re going through, or challenges they’re facing at school or home. This is a person who not only brings a positive example into their lives, but it’s also someone they can turn to when they need a supportive friend.

Love n Me’s Big Sister / Role Model Mentor Program can give these young girls the powerful female bond they need. Big Sisters will take on the commitment of becoming a presence in these young girls’ lives to help them find the strength within themselves to succeed in life no matter what is thrown at them. We often encourage our own Love n Me members to become Big Sisters, too.

    Support Groups / Counseling – Sometimes the damage is beyond the scope of a role model or peer development program, and it’s necessary to peel back the layers and look deep inside to begin the healing.

Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing place for girls to talk about the things that are on their minds, such as:

  • • Family problems

  • • School / Learning disabilities
  • • Bullying
  • • Substance abuse
  • • Sexual activity

    How to Be a Lady – Part of empowerment is knowing how to project an image of strength, maturity, and class. But some young women lack a role model in their life to teach them the ways of womanhood. In this workshop, Love n Me will help girls learn how to present themselves to send off the right signals instead of the wrong ones. There are lots of ways to dress and act that can be fun and attractive without sending off the wrong message. Learning appropriate conduct, dress, talk, use of body language, and good posture are all keys to presenting oneself in a way that not only gets noticed, but taken seriously. This is the fundamental basis for getting ahead in life.

    Tutoring – So often kids lose confidence in themselves when their grades are low. Yet it is usually the case that the schoolwork grading system doesn’t accurately reflect their intelligence. The key is to tap into the way to learn that works for them. But many schools – especially the public school system – don’t offer tutoring services. If they do, they are generic and inefficient – almost like they’re going through the motions without considering what the student needs. Love n Me tutors take the time to get to know their students, finding the best way to help them conquer their schoolwork. We believe that knowledge is a powerful tool that can boost confidence and self-esteem. Offered on an individual basis or in a group setting.

    Contact us or call 1-510-265-0583 to learn more about our Love n Me’s tutoring services.


    Educational Advocacy – Sometimes kids not only need assistance with school subjects, but help with seeing the bigger academic picture. It can be difficult and overwhelming when choosing an academic path. Love n Me offers educational counseling and support that will help young women pursue a college education which will lead to a viable career path.

    Contact us or call 1-510-265-0583 to learn more about our Educational Advocacy Counseling or to schedule an appointment.


    Court Advocate – The court system can be complicated and intimidating to navigate through, but fair and true representation is important – especially for cases that could impact the rest of their lives. Love n Me’s family court advocates speak on behalf of girls who need their voice to be heard in the courtroom, so they don’t get lost in the system. They help with filing paperwork, guide them through the court process and,if necessary, testify on their behalf during court proceedings.

    Advocates work closely with the girls, their families, probation or custody departments, the school system, and the courts to create a case plan that suits each girl’s individual needs. Our goal is to make sure that each girl receives fair and just representation to ensure the best outcome possible.

    Transitioning Back into the Community – We all make mistakes. But everyone deserves the chance to make positive changes in their lives after making poor choices. That’s why we offer a program that helps girls make a transition back into the community after juvenile detention. Our mission is to help these girls transform themselves from a troubled lifestyle to productive members of society with a future full of opportunity

    Contact us or call 1-510-265-0583 to learn more about Love n Me’s Transitioning program.


    Youth Development Workshops – Love ‘n Me Youth Development Workshops help girls achieve a sense of empowerment through the active pursuit of their personal goals. By making positive changes in their lives, these girls build up their confidence, ambitions, and leadership skills.

    It is important that the workshops take place in a nurturing environment (schools, community centers, shelters, foster group homes) so that the girls feel comfortable talking about difficult topics. Discussions can range from family and school life to personal relationships and sex education. The workshops can be enhanced with an additional service such as big sister mentoring, court advocacy, or community transitioning. Sessions last an hour and have the option of a group or one-on-one setting.
