The GirlPower Awards Luncheon benefits A Place Called Home programs for youth in South Central Los Angeles, particularly the APCH GirlPower PROJECT — a year-long program that inspires inner-city ‘tweens and teens to discover the beauty and strength of their minds and spirits, and teaches them skills that will empower them to transition into womanhood and lead productive lives.
THE GirlPower AWARDS celebrate women who have empowered themselves and achieved success in their professional and personal lives by giving back.
