About Purple Network
Founded in 2013, The Purple Network offers a mentorship and coaching program for female youth facing multiple barriers. We support the growth of female youth and create opportunities for young women to succeed through educational enrichment activities, mentoring, and an Alumni Network to support each other. We operate in the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life.
Young girls who face socio-economic barriers are more likely to experience disadvantages later in life. They experience increased levels of stress and can find their suffering translates to mental health issues, including depression. Their ongoing suffering can also translate to school disengagement, substance abuse, and criminal activity. These ripple effects are felt not only by the girls themselves but by the entire community. It is critical that we create programs that can break the cycle between the socio-economic barriers and negative outcomes.
Empowering girls for community achievement and leadership
The Purple Network mission is to provide an innovative mentorship experience for motivated young girls facing multiple barriers equipping them with skills to achieve their grown-up aspirations and build a diverse network of talented, vibrant women who inspire and support one another
Passion leads to performance, performance leads to success!
