To inform and empower women and girls to address issues affecting their health, education, financial, and social well-being.
Our short term success will be measured by the number of students showing academic improvements quarterly, academic and personal attainment, graduation rate, rate of those graduating in good academic standing (GPA 3.0 and above), and four year college enrollment
Ultimately, our success will be measured by the retention of students returning to WOPN as alumni members; starting with our first generation graduates who will be encouraged to become collegiate mentors and then professional mentors throughout the country. This process is our legacy for recycling intellectual and social knowledge within the network and expanding nationally through university partnerships.

Educate a child and you change a community. For the child, a good education means better career opportunities and higher lifetime earnings. College graduates enjoy better health and are more inclined to volunteer and vote. For the community, supporting our youths’ educational goals results in a stronger society.
When families, schools and communities take the view that children and youth are valued and respected assets to society, they necessarily support environments that nurture youth development. Children raised to embrace positive social values, to seek self-understanding, and to value their self-worth grow to become community-minded young adults with a sense of belonging and a belief in their resiliency. See how you can help our community's children grow into tomorrow's leaders.
