Awaken is about teaching and nurturing –

not out of books – but out of our lives.

 

Every teenage girl is in need of something. Whether it’s validation, a place to be heard, tools to overcome the trials she faced in her past, or simply someone to come alongside her to speak to her worth and identity.

Awaken is a place for us to meet those deeper needs. To us those words are a call to reach into these girls’ lives and extend a hand - in a genuine way - demonstrating unconditional love.

We ask a handful of girls if they would like to “do family” with us. For a period of time, we commit ourselves to teaching and nurturing – not out of books – but out of our lives.

We teach, we learn. We get to see deeper into the lives of these girls, as they see deeper into ours. We get to call out the hidden dreams in each of them. And then we move to activate them. That’s why we call it Awaken.
