Imara Roose Inc. is a holistic, inclusive, and transformative mentoring program
that assists high school girls with actualizing and maximizing their greatness
—personally, academically, and professionally—
by empowering them with the knowledge, skills, and social capital necessary to
break through systemic barriers to equitable access and opportunity,
ultimately changing their trajectory.
Girls of color are dynamic in so many ways,
as such, the approach to effectively
supporting their growth must be multifaceted. We take a holistic approach
—working at the intersection of personal, academic, and professional development—to empower our mentees.
Imara Roose is for girls of color,
by women of color.
We've intentionally designed a safe space that provides our mentees with a sense of belonging and unwavering support.
We embody the notion that
each girl is unique and valued.
We play a distinct role in changing the trajectory of black and brown girls
in our community.
After leaving our program,
our mentees continue on to achieve
what they once dreamed of!
