Who We Are
At FearLess Dallas, our top priority is to provide the tools and resources necessary to prepare women+ for success, whether through our one-on-one improvement workshops or in our group events. We have comprised our Board of Directors with individuals from diverse backgrounds with the intent of covering a wide variety of topics and skills to aid in life-long growth.
FearLess Dallas was founded by Jill Nastasia (MSW, MEd), fulfilling a lifelong goal of giving back. As a teen, Jill aged out of foster care. While she had street smarts and survival skills, she found herself and other women like her lacking Life 101. It was other women in her community who helped her not only survive but to learn how to navigate adulthood. Jill knew she wanted to someday create an organization that would help young women transition into fulfilling, sustainable lives.
Fast forward to 2020. When COVID-19 hit, Jill noticed it was not just women fresh out of the foster system who needed this service. Women+ of all ages were hitting walls, wondering what their next chapter would be.
It was this ah-ha moment that grew into FearLess's Full-Circle Mentorship approach. At FearLess, we believe all women+ have something to offer and something to learn. Regardless of their stage or status, we provide a community where they can mentor and be mentored, learn and lead, connect and be connected.
Whether your next step is counseling, or attending a community event, we are here to help you Become FearLess as you approach your next chapter.

What We Do
Everyone deserves a chance at not only acquiring life's basic needs, but establishing a healthy living environment for life-long stability, which makes our method of full-circle mentorship the right step to make that goal more viable. Our community of Builders and Collaborators lays a strong foundation for sustainable relationships and a healthy, happier life. We offer workshops and events to assist Builders in expanding their skillsets, in addition to providing a support network of individuals that serves as an expansive knowledge source.
Who We Serve
Our community of women and gender minorities is dedicated to providing the best possible opportunities for self-improvement and constructive building, and does so by maintaining an open mind while sharing the wealth of knowledge and personal experiences from becoming FearLess.
