Women Inspiring Girls (WIGS)
WIGS

WIGS (Women Inspiring GirlS) for young ladies ages 12-18, is designed to promote confidence, respect, and positive behavior using a nonjudgmental focus on positive, strength-based strategies.  Participants will not only explore the problems resulting in bad behavior but will also learn the tools and skills to make meaningful, lasting change in their lives.  In addition to the youth intervention curriculum there will be planned group activities, field trips, and community service activities. 

 

WIGS Program Objectives are to:

  • Develop future leaders who learn to embrace education and career pursuits

  • Increase Emotional Intelligence and strengthen Interpersonal communications

  • Cultivate positive attitude and promote positive social media

  • Increase financial literacy

 

Our vision for the young ladies is to create their own path of success and to devise a plan to get there. 

  • We will empower them to use their voice, positively, in their decision-making processes.

  • We will strengthen their desire to seek higher education opportunities through goal setting.

  • We will increase their thirst for knowledge to increase their learning capability and growth process

  • We will provide evidence and strength-based life skills to effect positive change and continuous quality improvement strategies, and social skills to improve communications and connectedness to build healthy relationships.

  • Through group coaching and mentoring they will learn critical thinking skills and new ways of presenting themselves to their peers and others.
