Who We Are

Tabby Biddle, writer and editor to empowering women and girls, published an article in The Huffington Post explaining why it is important to mentor young women and girls. Tabby says “when we support the growth and empowerment of women and girls, we raise the quality of life for everyone. This is because when women lead they not only lead in businesses, they lead in their community, they fight for their children, and they give voices to issues that are important to our collective future – like education and
 health care.”

The Werthing Foundation’s purpose is to enhance and engage young people through a pro-active life skills approach. By teaching them how to be productive in life, the foundation initiates their greater potential for personal and professional achievement.

Werthing Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonproft organization, focused on delivering effective programs and services to women and girls for the next level of leadership since 2009. Since 2010 Werthing Foundation has partnered with over 30 major corporations and community leaders to:

• Mentor over 3,000 girls through Leaders on the Move-Girls Day

• Provide empowerment programs to over 1,200 women

• Serve over 3,600 youth in the community through Healthy Choices Healthy Decisions program

When girls grow into confident, self-sufficient women, they have the power to positively impact the lives of everyone in their family and community. The Werthing Foundation provides leadership and development training programs to girls and women to become effective and powerful leaders.
