Our mission is to inform and empower women and girls to address issues affecting their health, education, financial, and social well-being.
WOPN is committed to addressing the educational and social development needs of public high school girls; bridging the gap between students receiving a quality educational experience and students at risk due to social issues plaguing our inner cities. We offer leadership and professional development training, educational resources and tools to aid students as they take an active role in planning and preparing for college.
Our overarching goal is to guide young girls into womanhood, with the assistance and support of our mentors who live and work in the community.
Through our Teen SMART (Sisters Mastering Academics and Realizing their Talent) program, WOPN provides mentoring services and resources to public high school girls starting in their sophomore and junior year. Each student is partnered with one to two mentors; a positive college student in good academic standing and a successful career woman. Our mentors provide students with educational support and professional development guidance, that will teach them how to create opportunities for academic success, develop their unique talents and use them to transform their lives and communities around the world.
