My passion for empowerment programming began in 2010. I landed the amazing opportunity of working with Healthy Sisters Healthy Lives and it was an experience that transformed my life. I worked with high school age girls, teaching them about all of the good stuff: self esteem, finances, relationships, nutrition, dating and goal setting. This type of education brought the girls ALIVE. Our girls shared in a way that empowered them to face challenges and I was hooked. Since then, I have worked on two other similar programs.
Sister to Sister Program - Lincoln Ave Church of Christ
Sister to Sister is a faith based program for girls that incorporated youth activities, biblical teaching and mentoring. To make it all work, I set up a committee to help delegate tasks and build engagement around the project. We were highly successful in collaborating, developing a strong curriculum and setting up a program that sustained even after I had to move on.
Workforce Empowerment with Courageous Women Association (CWA)
With CWA I supported their workforce development program and co-facilitated an interview skills workshop. We discussed interview skills, held mock interviews and discussed how to approach tough questions such as lack of work history and/or criminal records. We touched on those core elements, but the heart of the work emerged when we got our clients to open up about living out their purpose. We finished the series helping our clients develop plans to realize their dreams and live courageously.
I am always happy to support empowerment programming. For inquiries and availability please contact me! firstname.lastname@example.org
