BECOMING EMPOWERED THROUGH EDUCATION
Becoming Empowered through Education Inc. (BEE Club Inc.) is a nonprofit organization based out of Atlanta, Georgia, which is an after-school peer mentoring group for teen girls. The organization was founded in 2013 with 100 girls at Westlake High School in Fulton County, Georgia.
Today, the organization has welcomed over 300 girls in Atlanta, and is now expanding its program to Athens-Clarke County.
The BEE Club offers a community catalyst after-school program that connects high school girls with the tools and resources necessary to become organizational leaders in their schools and communities.
In the BEE Club, Peer Leaders organize a safe space for members to engage in peer-led meetings, workshops, service projects, and events.
