We are a character growth, early intervention and mentoring program that stimulates women to become role models through the development of of these traits: self-esteem, integrity, love, vision, poise and health. We believe in the potential and virtue of ALL women and all they can achieve with their natural talents.
Inner beauty is our main focus. We do not concentrate solely on the outer appearance in the same way that other programs do. We don't believe in exploiting women by feeding them lies about unattainable dreams, fantasies and goals based on their "looks". We encourage women to discover themselves and their strengths by inspiring them to become role models in their homes, schools, jobs, careers, relationships and in every aspect of their lives. Expecting great things from young women motivates them to be positive, have integrity, love one another, and ultimately to love themselves.
Empowering Girls and Young Women
TruModel was developed to help women in our communities be reached by opportunities that will empower them. Our goal is to teach, demonstrate, empower, and encourage women to be true role models. We want to reach out to this generation and future generations to best reveal their assets to the world.
By helping women identify all the challenges they face in today's society and letting them know that their voices can be heard, TruModel hopes to collaborate in transforming their dreams into reality. Coping in this world where there is pressure to conform, can be stressful for women in general; TruModel will provide an outlet to help women realize that there are options and that their goals are attainable.
