SHINE 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. The curriculum is a combination of lessons and fun activities to boost self-esteem and encourage healthy decision-making. SHINE has partnered with social services, the Magistrate, and local high school counselors to identify girls who can best benefit from the program.
