About the “Journey to Empowerment” Workshop Series

Our mission is to celebrate and empower young ladies by providing inspirational role models and introducing powerful life skills for personal excellence. Our volunteers are women who have faced difficult challenges in order to reach their goals, and as a result of their hard work and determination, they add value to society.

Your daughter has been invited to participate in the Journey to Empowerment workshop which will be a two-part empowerment workshop. As proven techniques for success, these are hands on workshops where your child will be given the time, space, and materials to learn life-long skills that can help her identify and work to reach her goals. In particular, our program teaches the following life skills (JARS):Journaling for self-awareness, creating positive Affirmations, establishing personalRules for healthy boundaries, and goalSetting which helps each girl reach milestones. Our volunteers add to the effectiveness of these workshops by sharing their personal stories of success.


Our program helps young women build confidence, get to know themselves and explore their unique selves through journaling, visualization, and goal-setting exercises. So far, we have conducted workshops for over 1,000 girls in area high schools and community colleges.
