“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

Welcome, Spring!!!

There’s no better time for renewal, exploration, and taking on new endeavors than spring.

Having learned important tips from WDIV-Local 4 Style Editor Jon Jordan during our annual Dress For Success, the RWF Teens continue to get ready for the workplace. In the next few months, the Teens will visit the corporate offices of Fiat-Chrysler for a day of job shadowing, our juniors will embark on the annual HBCU College Tour, join the summer workforce through our Summer Jobs Program in partnership with local companies, honor the graduating seniors at the Scholar Power Scholarship Breakfast, and come together for an evening of bonding and support during 24-Hour Girl Talk.
