Where every girl feels seen, valued and heard™

Sand Sisters Los Angeles’ Girl Powerful™ program is a youth empowerment 501(c)3, co-founded by sisters Tedi and Sonya Serge, designed to give females the socio-emotional learning tools to build a strong sense of self. Learn More...

How we make a difference

Sand Sisters Los Angeles mentors predominantly underserved tween girls, ages 8-14, to develop the tools to build a strong sense of self through socio-emotional learning (SEL). Sand Sisters designed the Girl Powerful™ curriculum using SEL to help prioritize a balanced life for tween girls and increase their academic performance, social well-being, and build positive self-esteem. The SEL tools are an influence on each girl’s individual foundation that will carry them into a thriving and balanced adulthood. Engage in our online conversation using the hashtag #GirlPowerful
