Tiffany Lewis is the visionary founder and president of the Confident Girl Mentoring Program, Inc., a transformative organization dedicated to empowering young women. Tiffany Lewis was moved to establish the Confident Girl Mentoring Program by her deep-seated passion for empowering young women, particularly those of black and brown communities. Drawing from her personal experiences, Tiffany sought to create a supportive environment that fosters self-esteem, confidence, and leadership skills. She recognized the struggles that young girls faced in her community, especially during challenging times when schools were closed and after-school activities were canceled. This insight, coupled with her expertise in youth mental health and restorative practices, propelled her to initiate a program that would not only address immediate needs but also lay a foundation for long-term success and community change. Tiffany's vision was to help the next generation of leaders heal, inspire, and connect with others, turning personal challenges into powerful narratives of triumph and resilience. Her work has not gone unnoticed, earning her a Congressional Record for her advocacy in youth development and a position as the Advisory Board Chairwoman for the Erie County Commission on the Status of Women. Tiffany Lewis stands as a beacon of hope and a testament to the power of a clear vision and unwavering purpose.
