the project

Ruth's Way is an Achievement Consulting Agency for Adolescent Girls who have experienced trauma and are displaying behavioral health issues. We help these young ladies to achieve their most successful futures possible by showing them how to identify and then properly address barriers that threaten their successful futures. 

Fabulous Field Trips for our Female STARS will enable us to take these awesome young ladies on field trips as a fun and exciting activity. Being able to explore outside of your own neighborhood enables our youth to feel empowered by opportunity! Also helping them to realize that they really do have opportunities beyond what is simply in front of them, and that the sky is the limit! Amazingly it really helps to uplift our female youth and increases their self-esteem as empowered young women of society!

This project will open up doors of countless opportunities that otherwise would be sealed shut for this population of female youth. 

Most of our female youth will never have these types of opportunities because their families simply cannot afford it. This project will provide our female youth the opportunity to explore the universities and other secondary education options that they want to attend, take an up-close look into the career that they've chosen as their lifetime goal of success, raise their educational awareness in historical landmarks, and teach them the essential process of utilizing self-care as a tool for increasing your self-esteem consistently.

the steps

1. Ask our Female STARS where they would like to go specifically.

2. According to their answers: Schedule College, University, and secondary education alternative options.  

3. According to the answers from our Female STARS, schedule visits to businesses for career exploration, such as hosptials, restaurants, legal firms, court houses, etc. 

4. Purchase gift cards to various hair salons, nail salons, massage therapy, etc. 

5. Explore Female Empowerment speaking engagements.
