Parent & Teacher Involvement
Teachers and parents need support too. The importance of teachers and students is immeasurable, but who is there for them? If either of the two is out of focus...so is the focus of our youth.
Why I Smile Empowerment began with HOPE in mind...Hope for the youth of tomorrow. After the death of a former student, athlete and mother, two educators came together as volunteers and began providing hopeful messages and activities for any that were willing to listen and join in. Their only goal was to make others aware of the realness of unhealthy relationships and domestic violence. As their passion grew, so did their research and knowledge. Their eyes began open as reality set in on the hurt in their own lives and backgrounds. Not only did this strike up a movement for healing but for self-awareness and self-worth as well. Like a Miracle...Empowerment was born...and so was an official Why I Smile Empowerment Nonprofit Organization. Here for you...creating ONE-SMILE-AT-A-TIME!!! You are #WhyISmile
Students enjoy the fun of sports, and along with staying healthy, sports and exercise is used for stress relief and an outlet for negative tension. It means the world to an athlete to have ongoing support.
