ABOUT US

Girls Rocking in the South (GRITS) is a mentoring organization serving teenage girls ages 13-18 in Wilmington, NC and surrounding areas. We offer a positive environment for young ladies to openly talk and express themselves about issues that they may face in their lives. We offer monthly workshops that are aimed at girls developing/enhancing self-esteem skills, financial literacy, etiquette, leadership skills, and educational/career development among other topics. We also offer various travel and community service opportunities throughout the year. 

Our hope is that every young lady, by giving of their time, efforts, and dedication to the GRITS program, will reap many rewards, such as: leadership opportunities, lifelong relationships, networking opportunities, and most importantly the bond of SISTERHOOD!

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to become a change agent in the lives of young women, ages 13-18, by building self-esteem, developing and enhancing life skills, assisting with creating mental, physical, and spiritual balance.

We aim to expose young ladies to cultural diversity, while giving them tools to grow as individuals, and brace them for success in today’s society. Through mentoring, tutoring, encouragement, and unconditional support we strive to change the lives of those around us.

MENTORSHIP

Our mentors possess the qualities and skill sets to be a leader for our young ladies.

DROP-OUT PREVENTION

One of the 15 most effective strategies for dropout prevention is through mentoring. GRITS provides teenage girls with a mentor who develops and maintains a caring, supportive relationship based on trust.

LIFE SKILLS

Our girls are regularly taught a variety of life skills including, but not limited to: relationship building, conflict resolution, team building, self love, self-awareness, and self management.
