Truly Valued’s Priceless Girls provides mentoring and support services designed to help cultivate skills adolescent girls need to develop as successful adults with a strong sense of their own identity.
Using an evidenced-based curriculum, It’s All About Being a Teen, of Nurturing Parenting Program®, is designed to enhance the development of nurturing skills in teens. Lessons promote healthy teen development. Teens increase their awareness of self and others by sharing issues about themselves, their families, and their childhood, as well as issues related to being a teen.

One-Sack Give Back Project
Truly Valued girls participate in projects such as our One-Sack Give Back, a program to assemble and distribute backpacks filled with school supplies to low-income students in Manatee and Sarasota counties to assist them through the school year. Other projects include providing aid to those devastated by natural disasters and serving individuals and families that are experiencing homelessness on Christmas day.
Tea Party 4 Girls
This event allows participants to meet and talk with successful professional women from the community who share their own backgrounds and information about their careers. This program is offered to a wider range of girls throughout the year, allowing us to expand our service as well as to identify new girls to enroll in our weekly program.
Truly Valued extends opportunities for youth to participate in activities during the summer such as camp, college-bound tours and a variety of service projects to promote social engagement. Summer Enrichment provides a safe environment for teens to gain self-confidence as they learn new skills such as problem solving and interpersonal skills.
We have found that transformation often takes place after getting our kids out of their home environments, showing them unconditional love, and speaking into their lives. These transformative experiences can be a catalyst to break the cycles of poverty, crime, teen pregnancy, and high school dropout. This important program sends girls who may never otherwise have such an opportunity to experience camp or campus life.
