Here at Afro Puffs and Ponytails, we are constantly searching for information about activities, book clubs, camps, etiquette classes, mentoring programs, and organizations to provide as resources for parents of young  African American girls/black teen girls.   Our hopes are that each resource provided will serve to improve academic performance, build confidence, enhance self esteem, instill leadership skills, empower, uplift, and educate African American girls of all ages.  We are not recommending these programs, but offering a starting point for you to conduct your own evaluation and research about whether a program is right for your child.If you know of a program that would benefit African American girls and it is not listed here, please let us know.
