Ongoing Mentorship


We Are Beautiful Outreach Programs, Inc was founded by Starshemah Duncan in response to a growing need for mental health and mentorship for young girls and women. The organization is dedicated to building self-esteem and cultivating the beauty within each girl and young woman. Our motto, “Cultivate the Beauty Within,” emphasizes the importance of embracing our unique qualities and accepting our perceived flaws as strengths.

Our programming is designed to assist girls and young women ages 8-18 with building life skills, developing self-confidence, and forming mentorship relationships. We also take a holistic approach, connecting the mind and body to understand how they affect our thoughts and behaviors. Additionally, we will be expanding our services to college-aged women to continue developing their self-perspective and mentoring younger girls as they navigate young adulthood. We will work with schools, community programs, and other agencies to provide our services and support to young girls and women.

Executive Director

Starshemah Duncan, the creator, and founder of We Are Beautiful Outreach Programs, Inc was developed due to the increased need of young girls/women who struggle with their self-esteem and perspective of who they are.  Starshemah developed the group, We Are Beautiful Self-Esteem because of her struggles as a dark-skinned girl it followed her into her adulthood which caused a lack of self-esteem and an inability to see herself fearfully and wonderfully made according to God’s purpose for her life.  

In August 2022, We are Beautiful Outreach Programs, Inc was established out of a growing need to provide quality mental health and mentorships to develop healthy self-esteem. The concept of the organization was based on the motto “Cultivate the Beauty Within” which means to assist each young girl or lady to begin to embrace the beauty within them.  For example, learning to love the qualities or characteristics that make us who we are and accepting what we perceive as flaws or weaknesses restructuring into strengths or beauty that makes us beautiful inside and out.
