WOMEN OF TOMORROW MENTOR & SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM METRO DETROIT wrote -
The Women of Tomorrow mission is to inspire, motivate and empower at-risk young women to live up to their full potential through a unique mentoring program with highly accomplished professional women and scholarship opportunities. Our mentees face challenges such as poverty, homelessness, abuse, bullying and parents involved in crime – all obstacles that heighten the pressure to drop out of school. Our program was born from the belief that caring professional women, sharing their support and knowledge with at-risk young women, can be the catalyst for success, inspiring them to excel.
Our Metro Detroit program now serves more than 1,100 at-risk girls at 53 public high schools across the region. Our program has achieved a 96% high school graduation rate in Metro Detroit among an at-risk population.
If we raise the most funds by October 19th, Women of Tomorrow will win $25,000 to provide support for the life-changing work impacting young women all around Metro Detroit!
