WEA's Young Women Entrepreneur Programs
WEA maintains to strive toward a process and culture that promotes partnership and relationship building. We recognize that solutions to complex problems require a diversity of voices, range of skills, global perspective and a tolerance for risk. Projects with the potential for leverage – in partnership, replication or expansion– are the best match for investment. All Funds activities embody a theory of change and explore new approaches to solving a social problem.
The importance of establishing “A Woman’s Circle” as a Program and Computer Based Instruction (CBI) Workshop is a cost effective means of teaching interpersonal communications and other personal development skills to women in transition, and other female and underserved demographics. Many of the Workshops will also be modified as youth orientation programs and distributed to PTA’s and after school programs, and made available in areas that otherwise would not have access to acquiring either the training or the skills from other sources. The Lifestyle Makeover Workshops for Women in Transition is designed primarily to assist women to develop the self-esteem necessary to make appropriate choices, and an easier transition within her everyday life. She will become a more productive member of society, and be able to develop values and work ethics traditionally reserved for management, supervisory and other specialized career trainings. It is well documented that when the standards of a neighborhood are being undermine, as is the case in some of our inner-city communities struggling for daily survival, interpersonal communication skills, home economics and financial management are not usually considered among the basic concepts for their normal pursuit of happiness. When in reality the development of those tenets are the underlying foundation for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as well as an extremely important component in the lifecycle for healthy human behavior; though in many communities its residents are rarely afforded the opportunity to explore its development as an option.

Women Entrepreneurs Of America
Our mission is to help create social change by investing in economic opportunities for women and girls. Our organization strategies, criteria, and mentoring programs are designed to achieve social justice gains that enable women and girls to earn an independent living, participate fully in the economy, and give back to their communities.
We identify and support promising innovations and leaders in the fields of entrepreneurship. We have a particular interest in models that contribute to transformational change at the institutional level, especially in corporations and government, and that attempt to bridge for-profit and non-profit sectors. WEA, Inc. does not focus specifically on low-income women or poverty alleviation. Addressing women's poverty is a key strategy in our portfolio, but we address barriers facing women and girls at all economic levels in society.
