This group empowers young women to explore life beyond our lifestyles. Our mentors they teach us about taking charge, learn new aspects in our community, and to even take on new adventures with us. I feel that this program needs to be in middle schools, because I feel that they'll enjoy it as well as high school students, because in middle school is when were mostly exposed to college, life decisions and transforming into future leaders of america.

This is my second year of Women Of Tomorrow also i am currently in my second year of high school (10th grade) and I joined women of tomorrow thinking it would have no effect on my life after high school is over, but was i wrong ! I gained so much, whether it be information involving other careers or stories involving the career i'd like to go into , i gained new friends and gained mentors that i could always keep in contact with!I would like to continue being apart of this club as long as i am in high school, it affects me and my peers with information we may have needed to get to our goal in life!

This is my second year in Women of Tomorrow. My mentors are amazing women who always know just the right thing to say. I have grown as a woman and as a being so much because of them. They have helped guide me and helped to create tactics to overcome my fears or solve my problems in everyday life. I have learned how to be taken more seriously as a woman and how to take up more space. These women impact my life and what they do for young girls is absolutely amazing. I hope to do the same one day

I had a wonderful experience with the Women of Tomorrow program last year and I'm definitely looking forward to continuing my experience this year. In the past year I have learned a lot about different careers, people I go to school with and even learned more about myself. I'm glad I got to meet my mentors and hear about their personal lives and stories, while they influenced us in the most positive of ways. The field trips are just a plus, the real fun happens within the walls of the school with great people.

Women of Tomorrow propelled my confidence in high school. My mentor was a phenomenal woman who was brilliant and motivating. The WOT also shaped me in becoming a leader. I shadowed an executive at Telemundo Studios in Miami for an entire summer and was awarded a scholarship for my undergraduate studies. After receiving my Bachelor's in Advertising from the University of Florida, I pursued my degree in law. Women of Tomorrow served as a foundation and gave me the opportunity I never thought I could have. This organization prepares women to become the best version of themselves and excel in many levels in society. Upon completing my degree, I plan on returning the favor to this amazing group of women and becoming a mentor for our high school girls. More high schools need organizations like this to promote healthy images of what women can achieve in the community.

They helped me realize how to detect if you're in a abusive relationship and that it's not always physical abuse. They helped me realize the college I should go to and the financial state I would need to be in if I go there. They helped me realize more reasons why I should go into the medical career. Most importantly, they're like a family to me, it's not just a room full of strangers, we all have a story and as time goes on everyone works up the courage to tell there's.

This is my last year in Women of Tomorrow, so I can honestly say that I have shared some great experiences over the past years. Being a female, Women of Tomorrow empowered me to raise my standards and focus on my education. The mentors bring in accomplished women to speak to us about how they became the powerful women that they are today. Also, we get to go on a field trip every year to wherever we like (for example, last year we went to visit the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric science).

Well WOT had really made a difference in my life. The fact that it provides me with the opportunity to network with girls around my age it also allows me to ask for guidance in a trusted environment. I feel as if I had never been introduced to this program I might not have solved certain critical situations without the insight of others who already experienced it in the group I probably would ha e made the wrong decision. So in turn I am very appreciative that I am able to be apart of WOT.

I am a freshman at Western Michigan University and I am very appreciative that I have participated in Women of Tomorrow. This mentoring program has not only uplifted me, but it has helped me motivate myself and explore. I am able to socialize, participate and also embrace. My grades are great, I plan on joining some activities such as Club Volleyball and a sorority. Ever since I've graduated high school, I have told many of my younger classmates to join WOT and explained how it has impacted my life and them as well. I went from low self-esteem to happiness, I am very proud of my self. Motivation is the key to the heart.

This program was pretty great when it came to bringing successful women in to talk to us. The only problem I had was that there were barely any women of color that were available for us to look up to. Other than that, Women of Tomorrow inspired me to actually do something with my life rather than just sit around like a duck and wait for something to happen.

I was part of Women of Tomorrow in high school 2010. I learned so much from this program. I learned how to be confident in myself and tips on how to be successful in the future. We had some incredible guests come and talk to us, including a breast cancer survivor. I was definitely empowered by their stories. Additionally, there were several scholarship opportunities. I recommend this program to all high school girls.

This organization was full of opertunities & wonderful mentors that went above & beyond for me. They were kind & understanding about situations going on personally with me & always lender a helping hand. This organization also brought together girls from all walks of life in my school to help us all get to know eachother better. We took visits to different college campuses in our area to help show us what we might be interested in. We had meetings with a domestic violence & relationship specialist to help us understand what was healthy & what wasnt. It was just a great opertunity to have.

Women of Tomorrow is not just a club, but we are a famaliy. We unite together and accept one another with open arms. We do not discriminate, but only offer support and unconditional love. Our mentors have taught me that it is not about failing and giving up on yourself that determines your character and future, but rather your willingness to get back up and explore new things.
Thank you for teaching me that life is not about missed opportunities and quiting; it's about success and happiness.

I love Women of Tomorrow, it's the only club I don't mind making room for in my schedule or afterschool activities. I've only been in the club for one school year but each session I enjoyed thoroughly because in each meeting I was able to learn something new and it's helpful because I can apply it later in life. Thus, the field trips were some of the best parts of the club because not only did I get to learn but I was able to experience some different fields of some career areas, I hope we can do this more frequently because I truly enjoy it. thank you WOT

This mentorship program has a good idea going on especially when it comes to inspiring young girls and motivating them to become role models. I truly appreciate that it's big but at the same time some sort of small club where it's easier to come together, mingle, and really focus on each other. I love the scholarship opportunities given, and again that it benefits the members unlike most scholarships where we're competing against a whole nation. The field trips gave me inside scoop of the alumni women and their careers.

Women of Tomorrow has definitely had a great impact on my life. I was a member of the program all four years of my high school career. Overall, the program has helped me overcome my shyness and speak in front of an audience. This program has also informed of the many job opportunities and internships that are available. Whenever I go back to visit my high school, the Women of Tomorrow mentors are always excited to see me and are always asking me about my success in college. The mentors main focus are on the success of all of the mentees, and if there is ever a problem, they are always willing to lend a helping hand.

Women of Tomorrow is a great program for young girls to dream big and believe they can do anything. I was a member of Women of Tomorrow during my 4 years of high school and was given many opportunities to see different vision of the many aspects. We shared laughs and cried out tears to our fellow girls but in the end we shared one passion and that was to get out there in the world and make it big.
