PUSH Girls Academy is a high school girls mentoring and scholarship program that supports, empowers and develops young ladies to become (P)urpose-led (U)nStoppable (S)uccess-bound and (H)ope-filled so they can have the confidence to compete, succeed and soar in an ever progressing world.
The Heart of the Program
I created PUSH Girls Academy from a place of longing to belong in a girls mentoring and social group when I was younger. Unfortunately, an invitation had to be extended for some groups. I didn’t have any of the external qualifications or social influences that would afford me the opportunity to be invited. I remember the feeling of not quite fitting the mold and being overlooked. I was motivated with potential and dreams just as much as those that were invited, so I could never understand why I wasn’t able to be a part. Therefore, it was important for me to create an organization for girls who had just as much drive, aspirations and dreams as the next girl, but who like me, never received that invitation to be a part. Proudly, PUSH Girls Academy is comprised of 25 girls who “received an invitation!”
Three of our core pillars are providing our girls with 1-Exposure, 2-Experiences 3-Examples. It is through these three pillars, that these young ladies can see that possibility exists, and can dream a new dream. These 25 young ladies are each uniquely gifted, talented and ready to make their mark in the world.
Sometimes, all we need is just a little “PUSH,” to become who we are created to be.

The success of a program like PUSH Girls Academy is contingent upon the support of people in the community. People like you who understand the value of passing on the knowledge and skills you have gained to the next generation. Who see a young girl’s potential and know that all she needs is a little “PUSH” to get to the next milestone in her life.
Our girls are a committed and motivated group. They understand the value of an education and just want to gain access to the tools and resources which can enable her to make all of her dreams come true. If you’re looking for a way to give back and feel called to offer hour time to conduct a class/workshop, provide tours, a service, products or summer internships, then we would love to hear from you.
