Women's Initiative for Self Empowerment (WISE)
WISE was founded in 1995 by multi-cultural immigrant and refugee women who saw the importance of education and leadership as essential drivers of self-empowerment and self-actualization. Today, WISE continues to provide culturally-responsive education and advocacy to immigrant and refugee women, girls and those on the feminine gender spectrum through our partnerships with local school and community sites in Saint Paul, MN.
WISE provides academic support and college preparation for girls in middle school through college.
WISE offers a series of life, leadership and job skills training for women and girls of all ages.
WISE gives women and girls the tools to become self-empowered and self-sufficient individuals.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
