Founder and Executive Director, Chanel Evans was passionately moved to create an organization that would give young girls the tools and resources to successfully overcome the challenges they will face as they become young women. The passion for helping young girls was birthed from experience and observation of the life-altering decisions young girls make throughout middle school and high school. Fueled by her passion, in 2010 while completing her senior year at Old Dominion University, Chanel created a vision board outlining her goals for the organization. In April 2012, the organization launched its first developmental program with a Public Charter School in Washington, DC. In September 2012, the organization was approved as a 501(c)(3) organization. Since then A Bigger Picture, Inc. has expanded to a total of 3 locations and started hosting an annual youth development conference called, Unleashed: Defining Your Power, Purpose and Passion.
