We have four simple goals:

1.To provide training for our girls in all aspects of television film production including camera, sound, and graphic work. 

2. To educate our girls about the social issues which affect them as both as women and residents of Long Island.

3. To empower our girls by helping them create a media presence that celebrates them

4. To train our girls on how to lead leadership skills by giving them primary roles and responsibility for their creative effort.
