As a 501(c)3 Texas non-profit corporation, this division of SheNOW uses mentorship, internships, scholarships, and educational programs that focus on self-worth and life skills to strengthen young women and their ability to depend on themselves.
Through grants, sponsorships, and donations, our goal is to launch school-based programs in inner city and low-income areas, beginning in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The programs will focus on training and mentoring young women who can’t normally afford to attain such important life skills and tools for success. We want to give young women in these communities the ability to focus inward, to achieve their goals, to break the cycle of disappointment, and to climb out of their current financial and socioeconomic situations.
As young women, these key years (grades 7-12 and college) are filled with relationships (both good and bad), familial & societal pressures/expectations, and large life-altering decisions. By partnering with them during such formative years to provide positive mentoring relationships and alternatives to the status quo, we can set them up to have a better chance at success in life down the road.
