Mission Statement

Bi-Wi is a self-esteem building opportunity for youth and families, particularly girls and women, who struggle with poor choices as a result of poor self-image and low self-esteem. Many of the families that Bi-Wi assists are troubled and non-traditional family structures. Our end goal is to assist our participants in recognizing their personal uniqueness, and embrace their uniqueness. Our educational component encourages both an introspective and a retrospective component used to encourage the participant's honest perspective on past, present and future behaviors. Bi-Wi offers a ten week educational course intensely exploring remedies of correcting behavioral issues resulting from low self-esteem. Bi-Wi is designed to serve as an enhancement to current educational curriculums ad may also be used as a diversion and an alternative to education intervention programs. Our mission is to "assist in the building of self-worth, assisting in the empowerment to make better life choices; enabling participants to achieve their highest potential; and ultimately, producing generations who discern their self-worth, demand their respect; and are destined for greatness."
