Champions Across the Bay Mentorship Initiative

The transitional stages of adolescence through the late teen years can be difficult to navigate through the pressures of family crisis, broken relationships, school, personal identity, substance abuse, homelessness, juvenile delinquency involvement, and with mental health statistics on the rise. A gender-specific program like My Daughter’s Keeper of Tampa Bay, Inc., can help girls and teens navigate through the learning process and give them the space to express, release and SOAR above these risk factors.

Research show that for young people with mentors:

  • 52% are less likely than their peers to skip a day of school and 37% less likely to skip a class[1].
  • 46% are less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs and 27% less likely to start drinking.
  • 76% are more likely aspired to enroll and graduate from college.

Yet, studies show that 1 in 3 children grow up without a mentor!

This is what makes the ‘’Champions Across the Bay” initiative such an important program for girls, teens and young adults to thrive, and connect with a team of women who models success after adversities. 

Through the ’Champions Across the Bay” initiative, we together can equip girls with the skills needed to navigate gender, economic and social barriers, and grow into healthy, educated and independent thinking adults.

I mentor young girls to encourage their ambition, empower their confidence, and to help keep them on the right track to accomplishing their future goals.

Hi I’m Jasmine Dario

Youth need guidance, good examples, someone to make them feel seen and worthy. Without it, it’s almost impossible for them to break the cycles they have been forced into. God has given us the tools we needed pour into ourselves, to thrive. I love this program because it’s about time we take those tools and pour into the next generations. It will impact their lives as they know it, the economy, and their generations that come after them.
