A Bigger Picture, Inc, is great program for young teens who are trying to find themselves and recognize who they really are without have to prove themselves to everyone. These teen girls are in great place to shine and explore with Chanel Evans, Founder & Executive Director and her fabulous team.

I admire A Bigger Picture to take a stand and become one to assist at-risk youth teen girls to love themselves and respect others. Learning to take a stand and be independent in life and thrive to earn good grades.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Award them grants to assist more teens in other schools.

A Bigger Picture is a much needed organization. In todays' society we see a ack of morals, values, and parental involvement amongst our youth. We desperately need these types of programs to aid in the development of our children. The work that Ms. Evans is doing in the lives of these young ladies is outstanding! Her passion, committment and love for these young ladies will forever leave a lasting impression on their lives. Her work is to be commended......

A bigger picture is a program that mentors young women. They focus on self esteem, self worth, an inter beauty. The girls come from all different backrounds and are faced with many of the same struggles into becoming a women. Everyone in this organization works very hard, and there is one common goal. While voulunteering you will experience a change in self which makes it so worth while.

Since I have been a part of this organization I have watched the passion, determination and hard-work of its leadership make obvious impacts on the young ladies who were taken into the program. The workshops conducted for the young ladies so far have given them opportunities to experience things they otherwise may have never had the opportunity to do. A Bigger Picture has worked hard to expand the thinking and the outlook of its girls, and has, I believe, succeeded in giving the girls courage to take on life more confidently and intellectually.
