EmpowHer Institute’s mission is to empower girls from marginalized communities through education, training and mentorship to become confident, college and career ready.
In addition to preventing dropout, EmpowHer Girls Academy Program aims to give teen girls the tools they need to cope with challenges, overcome trauma, stay engaged in school and reach their fullest potential.
“Social Justice is the outcome we want for the teen girls in the EmpowHer programs. They learn a sense of agency and sisterhood in the community we create while building a vision for their future.”
"EmpowHer helped me become more comfortable around other females. The circles of power really helped me to see that we are all actually so alike in many ways."
"What I like about EmpowHer is just being able to talk to our mentor about things we wouldn't otherwise talk about. That is really cool because it is not just us sharing, it’s our mentor too. That helped create a safe space for sharing."
