Give Back

Throughout the year, SERENE partners up with different organizations to create initiatives and opportunities to give back.

We are currently involved in Her Journey, a 9-month initiative with the NYC-based girls empowerment charity Petals-N-Belles. Each participating member from SERENE’s New York chapter has been assigned a teenage girl to mentor each month on real-life issues, self-development and future-self projections. 

Stay connected with SERENE with our newsletters, twitter and Facebook feeds to hear about new opportunities to give back.
