Purposely Chosen Teen Program

The Purposely Chosen Program is a facilitated curriculum-based program for teen girls

(ages 13-18) that will equip them with the tools they need to pursue passion, demonstrate leadership, and to overcome any obstacles they may face. Each session has a topic to guide the discussion and girls will have an opportunity to reflect in their workbook. We currently partner with Akron Public Schools and Cleveland Public Schools.  

Learning Objectives:

  • To Increase self-esteem, sense of personal control, and promote positive identity and awareness of self

  • To give participants the tools they need to develop and enhance personal, leadership, communication, decision making, problem solving and social skills

  • To decrease teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and generational cycles found in low-income families

  • To educate teens about their culture/heritage, and encourage them to take pride in their history

  • To encourage teens to develop friendships and to build a strong sisterhood within the community

  • To shed awareness and decrease teen involvement in risky behaviors such as sex, violence, and substance abuse

  • To increase high school graduation rates and college enrollment/graduation rates in low-income families
