We Are Out To Change The World One Girl At A Time ?
Our mission is to equip, encourage, empower and unite young ladies ages 7 to 18 with the resources to become self sustaining leaders while serving as key promoters of community growth.
BOLT is dedicated to preparing your daughter for a lifetime of success. We will coach every girl to create an inner confidence and unwavering competence that stays with her for a lifetime. We envision a world where young women are encouraged and mentored to take full advantage of the gifts and talents they possess personally, professionally and spiritually.
As a new non-profit organization, the importance of community and making an impact is the key focus. The only way to generate a sense of community is reach and be transparent. To break the cycles of avoiding the harsh topics which hinder our girls, we must unite as one. It requires the company of committed people to empower young women to migrate towards positive avenues and teach new behavioral patterns that will show them the ultimate possibilities to become leaders.
Please support our plans for expanding BOLT into a community effort that takes a hands on approach for getting everyone involved in the task of building our future leaders now. Help us start and continue the movement! www.weboltnc.com
