Two Isn't So Terrible!

Holy moly! We cannot believe that it’s been two years since founding Empowered & Poised.


We are happy to share that in year two we have accomplished the following:

  • Developed countless amazing partnerships, most of which can be found on our new partners page. Here are just a few of the many highlights:

    • We had a fabulous year in partnership with the South Euclid Lyndhurst School District, implementing our first ever 15 week in-school curriculum at Greenview Upper Elementary.

    • We took part in our largest event yet, the Dare to Dream Retreat, at John Carroll University.

    • We implemented 5 grants on the topic of Creativity & Entrepreneurship thanks to the Young Entrepreneur Institute and the Burton D. Morgan Foundation. If you are an educator interested in implementing entrepreneurship into your curriculum I highly suggest attending the Enspire Conference.

    • We had our first ever Mother Daughter Self-defense class in partnership with Krav Maga Cleveland.

    • We ran a wonderful workshop series at Charles A Mooney, where we were able to meet with the girls once a month during the fall semester to empower and educate them about social, mental, and physical well-being.

    • We had some fun in the sun with the girls at the St. Martin Deppores Family Center, as well as at the Pepper Pike Learning Center.

    • & so much more!

  • 100+ women offered to share their deepest and most heartfelt stories through our weekly blog. We also had a handful of community partners share their expertise on a variety of topics that pertain to helping the young women in our communities. If you do not receive our blogs please subscribe.

Again, a special thank you to every single person who has contributed in any way, shape, or form to this year’s success. We are excited for what the future holds not only for Empowered & Poised as an organization, but for every individual who is a part of our community.


Our events page is always up to date with the latest programs and workshops we offer!

We’re offering a few open enrollment programs that you can still sign your daughter up for this summer!

Stay tuned for what’s to come in year three! <3
