Since graduating 20 years ago as an Urban Studies major in this community,The NGWCC Is the first and only source of uplifting Girls and Women of Color in this community.In the urban environment such an organization is so very necessary to show us hope, give us guidance, lay the foundation for successful futures. In my experience , observing Dr. DonnaMaria Culbreth speaking with the common people ,the community of girls and women of color in our city they readily embrace the concept she has created. This organization is a valuable community resource.To quote the eager participants "Yes!!! NGWCC IS JUST WHAT WE NEEDED"Kudos to Dr. Culbreth for bringing alive in this city a community source which Is just what the girls & women of color this urban living environment has been searching for !LMCJCNJ

Thanks for starting this org. My daughter loves your Pillars of Character for girls and shared it with her church school class and the girls are really trying to live the pillars. I am looking forward to the expansion of your reach to other states because we need you in the south. Are you going to air a show on the Pillars of Character?

I always thought of me as being ugly because of how I look. I thought low of myself. I met Dr. Culbreath at a mall and she talked to me and my friends and helped us all realize that we were beautiful girls. and told us about the beautiful part of the national girls and women of color council for girls and then went to her car and gave us copies of the book for girls. what she didn't know was that she saved me from going the wrong way in life. I am now back in school and I have a job and take better care of myself because I saw what the beautiful section of girls was doing. I wish that Dr. Culbreath would go to schools and talk to the girls about her organization because it helped me and my friends to grow into young women on a mission to live a good quality life and have better opportunities. Thank you dr. Culbreath and the beautiful girls section of the organization.

I am excited about the town hall meeting because we need to talk about the problems girls and women of color face everyday. Girls and young women need so much help and guidance and the mission of the council is the answer to many prayers. I am looking forward to attending the town hall and am impressed by the accomplishments of the council so far. The anthology is giving us a voice to share our stories that must be told. Thank you council founders and members for starting an organization that will address our needs. Finally, we have hope.

The anthology, Our Voices Our Stories is the most awesome project because it is important for the world to learn about the things that affect us. I submitted 3 pieces and cannot wait to read the entire book. We love NGWCC and wish you great success.

NGWCC's team has developed initiatives and programs that will really make a difference in the lives of girls and women of color. I had the pleasure of meeting with the CEO, Dr. Culbreth and her vision, focus and strategies to make a difference is the answer to many of the issues that our women and girls are dealing with, especially in inner cities. I commend NGWCC for their classy way of bringing about change.
