Welcome to the home of the SHE READY MOVEMENT, INC., a woman owned non-profit organization 501(c)(3) focused on the development of young women between the ages of 13-18. Our goal is to create a safe space for learning, lasting experiences, and growth. We recognized the need for our youth in urban areas to be strategically positioned to gain a competitive edge, whether it is in the workforce or as a woman owned sole proprietress.
When the world says, ‘She’s not ready” and/or asks “Is she ready? The She Ready Movement is here to answer unequivocally that Yes! She (is)Ready and we present to the world that our young people are well groomed, poised, and ready. We emulate by the example set by the women upon whose shoulders we stand, proving to our young ladies that it doesn’t matter where you are from, or where you live, neither can define you as a person deserving of success!
We encourage our young women to be their best selves, walk in authenticity, be respectful and know that they are valued. They know that they deserve the best of what life has to offer. Our purpose is to develop the skills that prove to our young people and the world that they are ready and able to compete, not just on the local level but also on the global stage.
Cecilia J started THE SHE READY MOVEMENT as she saw the need to show young women, that they can achieve anything they put their minds to do. She was given huge life lesson from her grandmother Joan Savoy Penn and has had a passion for helping women all her life. She has always been instrumental in teaching and mentoring young women. She consistently teaches them that no matter what life gives you, you are in charge of your destiny.
Her annual fashion event benefits The She Ready Movement, recognizes fashion and beauty creatives while providing a platform for designers and young entrepreneurs to display their talents. She is a strong believer in giving back and paying it forward. She continues to show her She Ready young women that dreams do come true. Just Believe, Do The Work and Stay Ready!

Our quarterly meetings and annual events are successful because of generous donations from people like you!
