WOMEN DIVINE is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization established to respond to the alarming rise in high school drop out rates across the City of Chicago. We strategically plan to increase the attendance rates of young women in high school and promote the importance of becoming a college graduate.
Our programs serve as caring, inclusive learning environments that promote a young woman's best interest and reinforces personal respect. Our activities serve as a powerful platform for positive peer reinforcement.
We will enhance students' overall well-being by engaging the community in making high scholastic achievement, professional development, financial literacy, and cultural arts awareness a priority. In addition, each program offered by WOMEN DIVINE will enlighten young women about the possibility of attending an institution of higher learning, specifically a college or university.
We have designed four distinct mentoring programs that will enhance the lives of young women. The programs are divided into four main categories: academic enhancement, leadership development, financial literacy and cultural enrichment. Our mentoring and support programs are available to young women enrolled in grades 9th - 12th. We also look forward to forming partnerships with local school districts and other similar organizations that support the mission and vision of WOMEN DIVINE.
The ultimate goal is to foster a commitment to young women that will promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills and reassert a sense of hope in the future.
