Passage 2 Womanhood

Our main goal for the Passage 2 Womanhood program is to educate young ladies on successfully handling many issues that can become obstacles at some point in their lives.  Our program curriculum includes subjects, such as:

  • Life Skills (Etiquette, abstinence, substance abuse, banking and finance, etc…)
  • Health and Nutrition (Medical check-ups, immunizations, grooming and hygiene, etc…)
  • Career Preparation (Job search, preparing an application, resume writing, mock interviews, and dressing for success)
  • Pregnancy Prevention (Abstinence training, birth control training)

What makes the Passage 2 Womanhood program special are the young ladies who come from all walks of life. Our current participants come from juvenile centers, foster homes, or underprivileged poverty stricken homes. Their determination and commitment to better themselves is reflected in their voluntary signing up for the Passage 2 Womanhood program.

We engage smart willing young women who are enthusiastic about the Passage 2 Womanhood program, and all have a burning desire to make positive changes in their lives by taking the proper steps now to make a change for their future.  Over the years, we have successfully increased our contributions to the community.

Testimonials

College Tours

“During the various college tours we have taken, I have learned about scheduling, campus life and I even got the opportunity to sit in on a class in progress.  Ms. Camille would always make sure that we were properly dressed and energized before the tours.  The tour guides would make sure that we have a greater understanding of what college life is all about.  Passage 2 Womanhood has helped many girls, including myself, by giving them insight on what to expect when making the choice to pursue higher education.”

Career Preparation

“With Passage 2 Womanhood program I have been shown what to expect in the business world and how to be prepared when it comes along.  Through Passage 2 Womanhood, I have taken a few etiquette classes on how to dress properly for the workplace and how to conduct myself when at a business.  They also let us engage in mock interviews and business dinners.  I learned how to write an outstanding resume, prepare for an interview, and land the summer internship I wanted.”

Internships

“This year I interned at the Richard Gerstien Justice Building with Judge Beth Bloom.  During my time as an intern, I sat in while court was in session and viewed the cases.  I learned new terminology and the legal process.  Last year I interned at Saemz Law Firm, at which I had a brief introduction to the various types of law including entertainment and real estate law.  What I learned from both internships is how to handle myself in the law field and I hope to see myself in the law field in my near future.”
