EmpowHer Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2003. EmpowHer Institute's mission is to empower marginalized girls and young women by giving them the skills necessary through education, training, and mentorship to enable them to become confident, college and career ready. The EmpowHer Institute vision is to empower girls to design a future that prepares them for tomorrow's careers. We will reduce the high school dropout rate for marginalized teen girls who are at risk of educational failure due to teen pregnancy, truancy, and juvenile delinquency. Our strategy is to empower them to demonstrate self-worth and character; discover their future through education and mentorship; and become leaders of tomorrow.
