Shine Girls Program

stands for Shaping Healthy Identities for Nurturing and Empowerment. SHINE was started by Michelle Nunez, 2014 Miss San Pedro, and is a program for teenage girls between the ages of 12-18. The goal is to empower and motivate girls to reach their full potential and empower them to become who they were created to be.

“Throughout the Shine program, I really enjoyed myself. When I came on Saturdays I felt really happy and excited. I had fun and I learned that I shouldn’t let anyone get me down. Thank you all for being so kind to me.”   ~ Shine Graduate


“Here at Shine I experienced many new things and friends and I cherish every moment. I learned not to judge a book by it’s cover because you never know what could be hidden inside. I didn’t want to miss any of the classes and I loved it because every Saturday I had someone to talk to. This experience really helped me to open myself.”    ~ Shine Graduate
