Tea With Teens:Foster Care Resource

$10,000 goal

Campaign created 21 months ago
IAmWondaWoman is a nonprofit organization, which was formed to strengthen and reinforce the minds of inner-city adolescent girls.  We uphold our mission to mentor and motivate young girls, while allowing them the comfort and ability of discussing areas of their life they may not share with their parents, other family members, or even close friends. Our vision entails the importance of understanding their long-term goals in life, and then relating their long-term goals into short-term tasks to assist and encourage the realization and fulfillment of those goals. We coach them in the importance of hygiene and safe sex, as well as the negative effects of drugs, alcohol, and bullying.  Subsequently, we offer them constructive criticism on how they can improve as an individual; and lastly, we end with a positive outlook on life that’s realistically attainable to them.  We believe that the youth is more receptive to listen when you lead with motivation, so we choose to take our time with each individual girl, and give them a voice to elaborate on their perspectives and insight.

    -Tea With Teens is a Resource Gateway Initiative that will provide a platform for 10 young ladies annually within the foster care system. They will be given complete focus for the entire year. We will follow up on their grades and attendance monthly, as well as offer incentives...
     -We will require funds to provide resources, lessons and sessions with  various specialists who will educate them on aspects such as beauty, etiquette, job preparation, hygiene and sex education. By constructing various monthly groups and individual engagements, we intend to motivate each individual young lady to help them see their inner and outer beauty, and enhance their confidence.  Our ultimate goal is to lift the esteem of these young ladies, teach them the value of their inner beauty and remove the barriers that stand in the way of their success.
