Strong Women Strong Futures

We are proud members of the Women’s Fund of East Tennessee (WFET) network, a group of nonprofit organizations working together to change the narrative in our region so that girls, women, and caregivers feel supported and encouraged to pursue a postsecondary education. 

The network is leading the Strong Women Strong Futures campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the opportunities provided by postsecondary education, whether that’s taking classes at a community college, getting a certificate from a technical school, or attending a four-year college. Our goal is that more girls and young women see post-secondary education as a real and viable option and ultimately enroll in it.

This effort is important for our region. Nearly one in six women in Tennessee live in poverty, and half of Tennessee families depend on a female breadwinner. Having a postsecondary education can lead to economic security: higher income, more stable employment, and job benefits for our women and girls. 

Postsecondary education can open doors for women and girls and their families, thereby expanding opportunities for all people in East Tennessee.
