About Us

Soyini Circles Girl Corporation was founded in 2007 by Mindfulness Health Practitioner and education consultant, Terri Staten. What started as an idea to make a difference in the lives of young girls has grown into an organization that has served and inspired thousands of girls in Jacksonville, FL and Daytona FL (Bethune Cookman University).  As one of the leading girl empowerment non-profit organizations in Northeast Florida and surrounding counties we are committed to teaching and encouraging leadership, STEM education and self-empowerment through Mental Health mindfulness practices. 

We cater to pre-teen and teenage girls, ages 9 - 17. Our curriculum is comprised of 8  modules that focus on leadership, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), self-sustainability, self-empowerment through Mental Health.  We also believe in focusing on the whole girl -- mind, body and spirit. Program participants are able to explore who they are, and who they want to become through Mental Health mindfulness practices.


We also offer courses for women, ages 25 and up, entitled Soyini Sisters. Please look us up on Facebook. This program helps women heal mentally, emotionally and physically, in order to become the best version of themselves. Through the use of metaphysical techniques, we educate women on how to create and maintain a positive outlook on life using Meditation, Chakra Energy and Sound Bowl therapy.
