The vision that guides us is the eradication of the dropout epidemic among Los Angeles high school students, especially low-income, minority girls in our city’s most disadvantaged neighborhoods. Only 50 percent of inner-city girls – one out of every two – graduates on time.
EmpowHer Institute’s focus is on a holistic approach to transformation of the girl’s character, self-worth and well-being. We empower girls to discover their future through education and mentorship, and to become the leaders of tomorrow. There is as much emphasis on emotional growth, self-esteem, self-expression and problem-solving as we place on intellectual and academic achievement. Our girls find their voice and acquire the tools to carve out a future of inspired possibilities.
We cannot ‘do it alone’! Your support is welcome and appreciated.
|EmpowHer believes it's our business to connect with marginalized teen girls, introduce them to their talents and capabilities, and teach them life skills so they'll be less likely to drop out of school and more likely to earn a better future for themselves and for their families.We believe it's not just their future at stake; the future for these girls-our girls-is also our future.||At some point in our lives, most of us have been on one side of the fence or the other—sometimes we’ve needed someone’s help and sometimes we’ve been able to give help to others.If you are currently in the position to help EmpowHer girls, please consider the following:|
