Created in 2004, WET’s Risk Takers Series is a free educational program for teenage girls designed to bolster girls’ self-esteem by teaching them invaluable media literacy and leadership skills that enable them to navigate the 21st century’s media saturated landscape with wisdom, consciousness, courage and strength. The program has served hundreds of New York City teenage girls from over 80 high schools in all five boroughs, with a unique curriculum, inspired in part by The New York Times best selling non-fiction book, Reviving Ophelia, Saving The Selves of Adolescent Girls by Mary Pipher, PhD.
After six wonderful years of running the program, and the request for Risk Takers programs in satellite cities throughout the country, Risk Takers has gone on hiatus due to a decrease in foundation support. Please join us in bringing Risk Takers back, by pledging a donation to the program. With increased financial support, we can and will bring the program back.
