To empower inner-city teen girls towards becoming strong, confident, successful and moral future leaders.
Founded in 2003, RWF continues to transform the lives of inner-city teen girls in Detroit. Our core award-winning, comprehensive five-year Girls into Women program provides 8th -12th grade girls with weekly personal and career development workshops, tutoring, seminars and empowerment retreats. The RWF Academy after-school programming for 6th - 7th grade girls provides programming focused on personal development, career readiness and health and wellness.
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our girls through consistent engagement and mentoring. Our board of directors, staff, mentors, and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. Using data driven models, we provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference.
Life changing events like our annual cross country college tour for our high school juniors provides our teens with a broader vision for their future.
Our volunteers and mentors play a crucial role in our programming for teen girls. Our volunteers provide support at programming activities as well as annual events such as Give and Get Fit and the RWF Cares Christmas Celebration for homeless families. We believe every teen girls deserves a caring mentor to help guide and support her as she navigates her way through high school and transitions to college. Our mentors are devoted, professional women who are committed to our mission of empowerment.
