The purpose of Jewels, Inc. is to empower young urban girls, called Junior Jewels and TenderSTONES, as future leaders through education, training, and social activism. We are an organization dedicated to changing the negative connotation associated with being an “urban girl” in today’s society. We strive to make a difference in the lives of young girls and assist them in becoming successful with the path they choose upon graduating high school. Jewels, Inc. strongly believes in giving back to the community and has been doing so through mentorship of elementary, middle and high school girls in Washington, DC, and throughout the nation. The organization continues its initiatives to reach out to young girls everywhere. As members of Jewels, Inc., we strive to be mentors who are role models, leaders, and positive agents of change for our mentees.
We achieve these goals by prioritizing providing venues where young urban girls can acquire understanding of the technical and social skills necessary to assume leadership roles through actual practice. Hosting collaborative events between Jewels, Inc. and our TenderStones and Junior Jewels will instill responsibility for producing community-based events centered around entertainment, education and health awareness.

- Audacity Labs
Audacity Labs is a startup incubator and co-working space for teens with the mission of democratizing entrepreneurship. Our curriculum and amenities empower local 9th-12th grade students with the tools and resources to effectively develop a start-up commercial or social enterprise. The program will enable participants to zoom in on a specific issue or customer need, prototype ideas to address that need, develop a new product or service, and eventually lead to a sustained enterprise. In doing so, students will develop key 21st century skills associated with the start-up process, including problem-solving, creativity, confident communications, computational thinking, and collaboration. To support them in this endeavor, members are empowered by workshops, mentors, virtual reality excursions, academic support, and counseling.
