In a world that is often disconnected WOW Academy strives to build empowerment through connections by giving young women a voice and a choice.
Because young people often feel like they don't have a choice in the path life takes them, we believe that with the right motivation, they can realize and choose their path to success and prosperity. Through our various programs young women can see life from different perspectives and learn to make sound choices.

WOW Academy focuses on STUDENT EMPOWERMENT. In a world that is often disconnected, WOW Academy strives to build empowerment through connection by giving them a voice and a choice.

WOW Young Women's Empowerment includes learning, teaching and leadership in the WOW classroom. When students are given responsibilities it helps to shape their sense of responsibility.
