About Women of Tomorrow
Founded in 1997 by television journalist and author Jennifer Valoppi and Don Browne, former Telemundo and NBC President, the Women of Tomorrow Mentor & Scholarship Program is designed to inspire, motivate and empower at-risk young women to live up to their full potential while being mentored by highly accomplished professional women in their community. Our partner public schools select at-risk girls facing a variety of challenges, such as behavioral, economic, medical, abuse and/or academic to name a few, to join our program. Each mentoring group at each school is diverse in its composition with girls in 9th-12th grade who have varying strengths and weaknesses so they learn not only from their mentors, but from each other as well. This happens through mentoring sessions, college campus visits, career focused field trips and college scholarship opportunities. Women of Tomorrow positively transforms the lives of the at-risk girls we serve. Since the program’s inception, Women of Tomorrow has touched the lives of more than 16,000 high school girls in South Florida, Detroit and Philadelphia. Women of Tomorrow’s network of over 550 professional women currently mentors approximately 4,300 girls in close to 200 public high schools, with a 96% graduation rate among an at-risk population. Over $7 million in college scholarships have been awarded.
