DETROIT (January 30, 2021) – On Saturday, January 30, 2021, the Rhonda Walker Foundation
(RWF) Girls into Women Program will welcome Lathrup Village Mayor Kelly Garrett for a
personal development workshop where each teen will create a vision board for the new year.
Every year the RWF Girls into Women Program focuses on equipping teen girls in Detroit with
tools to make good life choices and set positive, attainable goals.

“The Rhonda Walker Foundation is excited about this month’s Vision Board activity with
Lathrup Village, Mayor Kelly Garrett. Our teens are looking forward to creating beautiful and
motivating vision boards for 2021,” expressed Arlisa Robinson, RWF Program Manager.
“Having Mayor Garrett lead this activity is so special because she has experience with leading
meaningful vision board activities, is passionate about serving the community, and is the first
African American to hold the role as Mayor in Lathrup Village, setting a great example for our
teen girls,” stated Ruselda Villanueva Johnson, RWF CEO.

The RWF five-year comprehensive Girls into Women program focuses on six program pillars:
college prep, career development, personal development, mentoring, health and wellness,
and community outreach. This month’s workshop will provide the RWF teens an opportunity
to practice critical social skills while completing the vision board for the new year. To support
this fun virtual workshop each teen received a special package in the mail with all the
materials needed for the workshop.
