Just Gettin' Started equips Black youth with the tools, resources, and community necessary to get started in life.
How it started
Initially, Just Gettin’ Started was a reactionary response our founder gave to a mentee going through a rough patch. Like many first-generation, Black college students, Nia was overwhelmed, stressed about her future, and second-guessing her every move. Her response was simple:
“You’re just getting started, Nia. Give yourself some grace. Be patient with yourself. Take some time to look at all you’ve accomplished despite the cards being stacked against you -- that alone is worth celebrating.
From there, Just Gettin’ Started was born.
