“It has been four great years of non-stop laughter, learning, and love.”  – Ravynne Gilmore “The RWF has made me more diligent, competent, respectful, and strong.  I feel more confident when I walk into a room.”  – Olivia Bishop “The RWF has taught me that you don’t have to achieve success by yourself if you have people around you who will encourage you to soar way beyond the ends of the earth!” – Ochga Smith “RWF has taught me to be a better person and broadened my horizons.  I also learned to become independent.” – Kiara Moody “As I venture out of the program and explore different paths of life, I will always remember coming in as a girl and exiting a woman – a woman who has all the intentions of leaving a humongous mark on this world.” – Ravynne Gilmore “The Foundation has helped shape me throughout the five years I have been involved.  Without this experience I don’t believe I would have evolved into the person I am today. “ – Dayna White  “The RWF has become a family for which I am ever grateful and has taught me rewarding skills that will travel with me throughout my life.” – Brittany Banks

Dressing for Success, TLabs, Scholar Power and More!

It’s spring at RWF and our teens are flourishing.  Our annual Dress for Success Event kicked off our spring season with lessons on dressing for the workplace  as our teens prepare for summer internships and jobs. With the guidance of our mentors and volunteers, each of our girls chose the perfect outfit for taking care of business.

Our education program is growing fast. RWF is proud to partner with TLabs to provide year round tutoring, ACT/SAT Prep and opportunities for our teens to participate in academic competitions. Program participants are seeing great results as their grades and preparation for college continue to improve.

We are excited as we gear up for this year’s Scholar Power Scholarship Breakfast honoring our graduating seniors, volunteers and mentors.  Every year RWF proudly awards our deserving seniors with scholarships and acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our volunteers and mentors.

Get involved and join us for one of our upcoming events Give and Get Fit Sunday, July 26, 2015 and our 3rd Annual Automotive Industry Golf Challenge Monday, July 27, 2015
