Becoming Educated And United Talented Youth
B.E.A.U.T.Y. is designed to build leadership skills, community spirit, and friendships in a positive, supportive, and nurturing environment. This teacher-initiated program was created in 2006 and was developed to provide positive enrichment opportunities for female students who have limited access to supportive and consistent guidance. It was also implemented to help young ladies who face social and/or economic barriers. Our mission is to help our young ladies to not only meet, but to exceed their potential as citizens in the community. Our organization goals are as followed:
To develop and provide educational and social enrichment;
To identify solutions to challenges that face young girls;
To enhance development by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging, and influence;
To expand the understanding of healthy standards of behavior;
To improve and strengthen each young girl's self-worth and sense of the future.
It is open to all 4th and 5th grade girls who are encouraged on a daily basis to "live their life like its golden". All mentors collaboratively work together to make each experience unique, memorable, and valuable in the areas of leadership, academics, personal development, and social development.
B.E.A.U.T.Y. was founded by Ms. Shavone Ferguson, Ms. Harriet Holmes, Ms. Cynthia Fredericks, and Ms. Kimberlyn Carter. Our mentor volunteers for this year are Mrs. Narveshia Stephens, Ms. Deedra Grier, Mrs. Vashti Pullen, Ms. Tanya Teague, and Mrs. Colette Evans.

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me and be my friend.
