Description

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. Please learn more about the Professional Development Program and the Giving Back Program via www.inhershoesfoundation.org

Thank you for attending and supporting our events.

IHSF is comprised of inspiring men and women who are dedicated to helping the community. It is a smaller organization where everyone can make a real impact, where everyone is encouraged to give back to the community in a positive and meaningful way.

The Foundation consists of amazing individuals dedicated to the promotion of a happy and healthy lifestyle for all women everywhere. The In Her Shoes Foundation is many things: a support group, charity, professional development workshop, and many more. The members of the organization do their very best to spread the message our mission and cultivate empowerment.

IHSF not only stands for a great cause but is filled with wonderful women to know and work with! They do a great job of keeping everyone in the loop about the organization during monthly meetings and have some great events (happy hours, lectures, shopping events, etc). I would definitely recommend IHSF whether you're looking for a serious commitment volunteer gig or a casual one.

I attended a professional development workshop more suited for young girls without much corporate experience. Not many attendees. The organization seems very disorganized.
