Evoluer House gives the following descriptive information:
The Evoluer House, an innovative and dynamic nonprofit organization, delivers empowerment programs that help girls to envision a future devoid of disadvantages and filled with possibilities. The target population is girls of color in Philadelphia aged 13 to 18, who are experiencing a unique set of social and emotional challenges and barriers to success. Our curriculums are designed to promote emotional, mental, and social well-being, to equip girls with the tools they need to become college-bound and career-ready, and break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. Evoluer House provides a safe community for girls to share experiences and learn both from and alongside one another.
We held our first personal development program in the summer of 2004 at the Francis Myers Recreation Center with 25 girls. We've grown tremendously and have successfully partnered with the Philadelphia Department of Recreation and Camden New Jersey Department of Community Services to operate the program at 28 recreational facilities.
In 2008, we launched EvoluerGirl BlogSpot and invited teen girls to join. The response was truly incredible. More than 4,000 girls from around the globe subscribed to the motivational network where they can find college scholarship information and enrichment workshops alerts, as well as post and send text messages, and more.
In 2010, we partnered with the School District of Philadelphia to conduct our personal development program at Warren G. Harding Middle School.
Over the past 12 years, more than 1,200 girls have graduated from our Personal Development and Youth Workforce Development Programs. Today, our programs and workshops take place at inspiring locations throughout Philadelphia, including Peirce College, BNY Mellon Wealth Management and La Salle University.
