Helping Our Teen Girls In Real Life Situations, Inc. (HOTGIRLS) was founded in November 2001 by Dr. Carla Stokes, a health educator, speaker, and life coach for teen girls. HOTGIRLS is a grassroots, youth-driven 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
dedicated to improving the health and lives of young black women and girls. The organization provides leadership development programs for young women that empower them to design and
implement social change projects that tackle HIV/AIDS, violence against women and girls, street harassment, women's health,
images in the media and hip hop, and other health and social
justice issues that disproportionately impact black women and
HOTGIRLS also engages young men and boys in challenging
attitudes about masculinity, manhood, and gender-based violence
through its Boys Overcoming Social Stereotypes (B.O.S.S.) Initiative.
In 2008, HOTGIRLS launched “I Am Worth It”, a national campaign
that provides a platform for black girls to affirm their worth and
promote positive self-representations online and in their local
communities -- while challenging harmful stereotypes about
women of color.
HOTGIRLS also builds the leadership potential of college students
through the S.I.S.T.A. (Sisters Inspiring Sisters to Action) Initiative.
In recognition of its innovative health, life skills, technology, and
media education programming for girls, the organization received
the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Georgia State Program Award
in 2007. Over the years, HOTGIRLS has been featured in the New
York Times and other national media outlets.
