Purposefully Pretty

PurposefullyPretty is 501c3 non-profit organization in Jamaica, Queens that seeks to outreach, teach and inspire the young women in the community to identify and pursue their purpose.We accomplish our mission by hosting programs, workshops,community service activities, and empowerment events. We also  provide mentorship though our Goals Taking Action Mentorship Program and other resources that young women may need to successfully identify and pursue their purpose.

We are so proud of all that we have accomplished in the first quarter of 2018. We ended 2017 with our #ComingTogetherforChristmas toy drive. During this event, we collected toys from a variety of partners and sponsors; and handed them out to children in need at a local shelter. In February 2018, we hosted our first PurposefullyPretty Meet and Greet of 2018 and Buffalo Wild Wings in Green Acres Commons. We recruited over 13 young women to become registered members at this event. Additionally, in February, we were able to take three very special young women to the Black Girl Magic Ball; where they were able to be empowered and celebrate being black girls.

In March, 2018, PurposefullyPretty hosted our 3rd Annual Career Day; where we had young professionals from a variety of careers come in to teach young women about their careers through fun and interactive workshops. Furthermore jus last week recently, took 13 members who have dreams of becoming medical professionals on a trip Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Science. During this trip, young women were able to learn about Sophie Davis and tour the City College Campus. We are currently gearing up to take our young women on a trip to see A Wrinkle In Time, for a time of bonding and inspiration with the organization.

PurposefullyPretty is so excited for the second quarter of 2018, where we will be hosting out 6th Annual Extreme Prom Makeover and our Blessing Bag Community Service Project.
