Women Inspiring Strength and Empowerment (WISE Club)
For more detailed information about the WISE Club download our brochure.
In the fall of 2010, MOST Club members responded to requests from female peers by helping them launch a complimentary program: Women Inspiring Strength and Empowerment (WISE). Club WISE, currently in 14 Washington, DC public schools, offers a separate space for elementary, middle and high school girls and young women to explore key learning areas of development such as self-esteem, emotional and social intelligence, leadership, gender-based violence prevention, and healthy relationships. Our WISE members share these lessons with their peers, and in collaboration with their MOST Club brothers, lead member-created Community Strength Projects.
An evolution begins in WISE Club, because we transform what it means to be a woman by creating safe spaces to discuss difficult issues, like date rape, gender norms, violence and body image issues. Involvement in this revolutionary program can be the catalyst for maturation into a self-aware and confident young woman.
