“The health of girls and women is a true indicator of the health of the
nation and of the next generation. If girls and women are not healthy,
we are all at a disadvantage."

-Professor Muhammad Yunus,
Nobel Peace Prize Winner and Recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom

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.

The program has taught New York City teenage girls to become healthy, informed, courageous leaders of society, both in their present and their futures. With the support and participation of special guest Risk Takers at each session including Keri Russell, Olympia Dukakis, Frances McDormand, Michelle Monaghan, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Westfeldt, Mary Louise Parker, Alison Lohman, Ally Sheedy, Kelly McGillis, Kirsten Smith, Nicole Holofcener, Jessica Sharzer, Kirsten Smith, the girls of Risk Takers are reminded that by taking empowered risks, and avoiding damaging risks, they can make their own dreams come true.

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.
