God’s Girlz is offered free of charge to teen girls in the Precious Me Inc. program.  It is a closed group in that only those specifically referred by either parents, mentors or PSE Coordinator or Director can participate.  All referrals MUST go through the PSE Director who will in turn consult with the parent to determine if God’s Girlz is recommended for that specific young lady.
