Empowered to help girls & women find and keep their authentic selves!

Brown Girls Mentoring was founded in 2016 with a mission to equip Brown Girls with tools to build her self-confidence, develop relationships, resolve conflict, make wise decisions, work in teams, and develop practical life skills. We educate your Brown Girl(s) through lectures, trainings, activities, simulations, role play, affirmations and so much more!

Brown Girls Mentoring is here to empower young Brown Girls in all shades of beauty to know their worth, strive for excellence, and to embrace their natural beauty. Our vision is to form lifelong bonds of sisterhood, to build confidence, and to see EVERY Brown Girl win!

Founder & CEO

Mrs. Jamie Blunt

Mrs. Jamie Blunt is the founder and visionary of The Brown Girls Mentoring Program, an organization designed to create a safe place for young girls and women to become better versions of themselves.  The Columbus, Ohio native found her calling in helping set the authentic standard for young brown girls.  Her pivotal Life Lessons are continuing to help her on her own journey to self actualization and are a standpoint in the structure of Brown Girls Mentoring.  

Jamie’s own life lessons started as a girl, growing up with the influence of her now-late grandmothers.  She learned what it was to be unapologetic about who you are; remembering to keep in prayer and developing a zero tolerance for things and people that do not serve you.


She is naturally driven to serve and is always eager to see people smile.  After participating in community events and organizations over the years, Jamie realized her urge to help others see the light in themselves.  Dedicating her life to the advancement and well-being of young, brown girls that were just like her, from her neighborhood or the same, became a no-brainer.  The ability to separate who she was from what people expected her to be also holds much weight in her success.  It is one of the key factors she teachers her Brown Girls, “I started to be okay with who God created me to be.  I want girls and women to know it’s okay to be unique and be different… to know they were born to be different.  They don’t have to fit in.”  Fitting into molds and subscribing to what society thinks you should be, how you should look, feel, etc. have all become magnified in our fast paced, media-driven society.  

The Brown Girls Mentoring Program aims to be a catalyst for the changes needed in our community –  Leaving a a legacy to give girls the tools to continue to pay it forward.
