In Her Shoes Foundation is excited to offer a new and unique mentor program called Ready Set Girls Academy. The goal of this program is to give young women the tools to become critical thinkers about the everyday expectations and pressures they encounter in today’s society. Students who participate in this program can expect to exit with greater confidence and the skills to reach for higher achievement. Ready Set Girls Academy is structured around four themes: leadership, healthy living, social skills and lifestyle. The curriculum is designed to provide participants with a safe and caring learning environment where they can learn the life skills that will allow them to excel in each of the four categories. The curriculum will be presented by women who have the education credentials and leadership experience to bring these concepts home to teenage girls.
We are seeking a Program Manager to oversee day to day programming with multiple schools and other site locations. Please email your resume to email@example.com

A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER In Her Shoes Foundation has over 60 committee volunteers who run this organization on a daily basis, in addition to working their full-time jobs and fulfilling their everyday obligations as parents, spouses, siblings, daughters - or sons and friends. When I founded this foundation in 2008 we originally called it The Positive Girls Club. It was envisioned as an organization that would support women of all ages who were determined to make positive changes in their lives. I started hosting monthly professional development workshops to inspire, connect, educate, and support the women in our community. Today, over 10 years later, we’re now known as In Her Shoes Foundation, and our flagship program, Ready Set Girls Academy, is exceeding our goals year over year for reaching young women preventatively. This curriculum-based program is run by our volunteer group mentors and is being delivered within public and private high schools. In addition we partnered with multiple community organization who support our initiative.
Today, we are achieving our vision of empowering and inspiring every woman and girl to be her personal best. We currently have three programs and hope to expand in the next couple of years.
