Who are we?

Real Girlz is a community-based organization providing safe spaces for girls to foster healthy relationships, develop leadership skills, and believe in their greatness.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to provide a safe and supportive environment where girls can embrace their individuality, build meaningful relationships, and cultivate essential life skills through opportunities and resources.


Through a variety of programs and services, including mentorship programs, leadership development, and our SumHer Experience, we strive to equip girls with the confidence, resilience, and skills needed to navigate life's challenges and pursue their dreams.

OUR HISTORY

R.E.A.L Girlz was founded in 2019 providing the first program to juveniles at The James River Detention Center. Due to her previous community involvement as an AmeriCorps member and Youth Program Director, our founder Tammie Mobley, was able to implement the program into Chesterfield, Henrico and Richmond Public Schools. However, in March 2020, the pandemic closed all schools.


Through a partnership with Nextup RVA and Virginia Department of Health. R.E.A.L Girlz began virtual programming by delivering activity packages across the city to keep students engaged while spending long days at home.



R.E.A.L Girlz known as the "hype girls' program" is now offered in three school districts in Virginia, reaching over 200 girlz yearly.
