Does TWWI have 501(c)3 status?

TWWI is a not-for-profit incorporation in the State of New York and is sponsored by a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our fiscal sponsor (or “umbrella organization”), Subud International Cultural Association, is a fully tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in the eyes of the IRS. As their sponsored organization, we are able to receive tax-deductible donations and apply for U.S. grants.

Where is TWWI located?

We recently moved to Washington, D.C. from New York City. Our mentorship program operated in Brooklyn and Bronx, NY from 2012-2017, and we have plans to expand to Washington, D.C. in the near future. Our social change projects have a global reach, as we collaborate with NGOs in developing countries to develop innovative programs abroad.

Who was eligible to join the Young Women Rock! Mentorship Program?

All female youth aged 14-18 who lived in either Brownsville/East New York, Brooklyn or the South Bronx neighborhoods were eligible to join the program as mentees. Eligible mentors were female candidates between the ages of 21 and 35 that were able to commit to the program for one academic year.

How do you ensure the safety of the mentees in the program?

In order to provide a safe environment for the communities we serve, all prospective mentors are fingerprinted through the Office of Children and Family Services before they are allowed to work with children or other vulnerable populations.

Is TWWI open to partner with other organizations?

Yes! We welcome opportunities to collaborate with other community organizations in order to empower women and girls on a global scale.

Does TWWI host any events?

Yes, TWWI hosts a number of community empowerment events throughout the year. For example, our Love, Light & Lyrics Showcase is a performance event to support the success of our programs, and our Young Women Rock! Leadership Luncheon marked the completion of each mentorship cycle. We have held film screenings, and partnered with local communities in Harlem and the Bronx to host events during International Anti-Street Harassment Week.
