In 2010, Honey Shine received 501c3 status as Honey Shine, Inc. Honey Shine’s mission is to encourage the balance of mind, body and soul in girls and young women by providing nurturing experiences that enlighten their paths and empower their future.
Founded in 2002 as the Honey Shine Mentoring Program by Tracy Wilson Mourning, Honey Shine has grown in many ways over the last 10 years.
Honey Shine holds bi-monthly workshops, field trips, and a six-week day camp for enrolled participants each year. “Aspire to Shine” workshops offered to the girls in the program, who are affectionately called ‘Honey Bugs’, address life-skills lessons and educational experiences that involve: health, nutrition, sex and drug education, career mapping and education.
Workshops are held at a variety of South Florida attractions outside of the girls’ own communities to help them in the development of personal goals; self-respect and self-esteem; financial literacy; journaling; self-exploration and expression.
