Overview

Mission Statement

Our mission is to increase the level of community engagement amongst women in the community, in turn facilitating their personal, creative and entrepreneurial growth.

Background Statement

The concept for BBWC came about in 2014 while founder Bianca Rose, spent time studying abroad in Sevilla, Spain. As a then twenty-one year old, the time away from her home environment in New York City allowed her to personally reflect upon her relationships with those close to her. Shortly after returning home, a series of broken personal relationships led her to believe that self empowerment and the empowerment of women within her own community was a resolution for self growth, and the later creation of BBWC. BBWC continues to scout for the world's most positive female forces.

Impact Statement

Top 5 accomplishments from past year:
  • We have restructured our board ordinance to make sure we are meeting fiduciary guidelines, better than before.
  • We have gained more partnerships in the community and have served more establishments this year.
  • We have  two new consultants working with us pro-bono.
  • We have come up with new plans, such as: fundraising, business, partnership proposals and more.
  • We continue to gain new members, and garner new interest from women in the community.

Top 5 goals:

  • Acquire new members, volunteers, and overall participation and interest from women.
  • Consistency in success of our three programs; continuing to build.
  • Consistency in building and maintaining rapport with partners, donors, and major supporters.
  • Add new and experienced leaders, including a senior advisory board. 
  • Enhance our leadership skills and abilities through different leadership training sessions.

Needs Statement

In order to combat the issues related to lack of self-confidence and self-worth among women due to domestic violence, a keen understanding of the six personal values mentioned above is essential. We feel that the women of Boston will feel empowered through these personal values, which will lead to the prevention of physical fights, both in and out of school, a prioritization to focus on school work, and most importantly, these personal values will encourage women to speak up in regards to feelings of hopelessness, suicidal thoughts and negative experiences, both in the past and present. The Team Building program (which focuses on teen empowerment, skill-sharing through workshops and seminars, and book club discussions on self-help books, offers our environment an outlet where women of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities can work with, teach, and learn from each other. The activities and lessons implemented through Team Building are valuable guides for all women, including domestic violence survivors and young women emerging out of their teen years who we will be working with as well. Our programs facilitate personal, entrepreneurial and creative growth, and enhance the level of community engagement amongst women who participate.

CEO Statement

We believe the act of serving the community resurfaces a familiar nature to women once in action. Serving others could never not be a cool thing. We vow to make an example to young women around us; we can still live our lives while still taking time to dedicate hours to the community.
Our monthly girl talks we call #WineAboutIt (21+) and our Community Service program have notably changed the lives of women in the circle. The organization is truly a prime example of the beautiful, evolutionary things that happen when women come together, share and commit to service in the community.

Programs

#WineAboutIt

Our monthly-link ups, better know as #WineAboutIt, ​are where members come together once a month to discuss modern day women issues.
Budget  $360.00
Category  Public, Society Benefit, General/Other Citizen Participation Programs
Population Served Females Adults Adolescents Only (13-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
  1. Distributing surveys in the beginning, middle and end of the 12-month period that measure growth in:

  • Career/School success
  • Confidence (understanding the power of her inner/outer strength)
  • Leadership (understanding the power one must make a change in herself or in her community)
  • Team building (understanding benefits of communicating and working with each other)
  • Courage (understanding benefits of using their voice)
  • Persistence (developing a positive attitude towards life’s obstacles)
  • Service (understanding benefits of community engagement)
Program Long-Term Success 
  1. Team Building
  1. Teen Empowerment with the Dorchester YMCA Teen Program is at least a monthly occurrence where we encourage teenagers to join us in the Team Building activity we implement that month. This can include, healing circles, book club discussions, guest speakers that are relative to obstacles teenagers are facing, and leadership development. Membership is opened to and free for female teenagers. We also occasionally bring teenagers out with us during our community service outings when appropriate. The objectives of this project are to help increase school success and to help improve the mental, physical, and emotional well-being of female youth so that they may make smarter life choices. The project will take one year, beginning in 2018.

  2. The Book Club is an educational and feasible event that allows participants to communicate and exchange respective opinions. Our discussions stem from the book half of the time we meet. The other half is dedicated to discussing questions about life that relate to the book. Through this event, the participants learn relevant principles that can contribute and change the direction of one's future daily activities and habits. We have recently partnered with Casa Myrna to hold a small number of book club sessions every year.

  3. Play & Parley Night is an educational event that allows and encourages both female adults and teens to showcase a personal, creative or entrepreneurial passion through a seminar, workshop, panel, or any type of educational environment. This is an event that educates the public and opens doors of opportunities for speakers. Interactive activity is typically included. Members also have the opportunity of bringing other entities outside of the circle to host a Play & Parley Night, as long as it is resourceful for all. This is an opportunity for both women and teenagers to skill-share and network. There is typically a small fee (or free) to the public.

Objective: Over the course of twelve months, we plan to develop relationships and mentor 10-25 teenagers through appropriate BBWC activities. We aim to work with 20-30 women in facilitating book club discussions and skill-sharing events. We plan to have focus and see a change in the following areas:

Program Success Monitored By 

For one entire year, we will have at least three surveys that we’ll use to measure how successful Team Building is. We will collect data from participants. We find that the quantification evaluation is hard for this initiative, so we decided to use qualitative methods to evaluate.


The survey will include questions that highlights and evaluates: the participants’ own reflections and their feelings on others to evaluate the power of her inner/outer strength, how their daily routines/activities have changed, how their leadership expression has changed, and we will also evaluate if there has been a change of frequency in using their voice to express different perspectives. We will also survey on the success of our initiatives and what we could better work on for the next year. We will analyze each section data to make targeted adjustments to prepare for the next activity. When we analyze this data, we assess how effective our community influence is.

Examples of Program Success  N/A

Community Service

We make it an obligation to serve causes that cater to furthering the betterment and protection of women. Although we aim to help women in particular, we hold neither biases nor limits to who we serve. We serve within the urban community, and throughout other communities in Boston to help bridge the gaps throughout our city.

Team Building

Team Building includes activities with teens; a book discussion that involves reading and strategically discussing self-empowering related books that provoke our thoughts and inspire overall self-achievement; and a passion and skill-sharing workshop, seminar or panel, through what we call Play & Parley Night. Every month we put on one of these activities.

II. For Team Building with the Dorchester Y girls, we plan to implement a system that includes: Community Service, Team Building, and activities similar to our "Play & Parley Night" program. We have met with some of the girls, and realize we will be working with both middle school and high schoolers from Boston Public Schools. We also have brought ABCD on board to provide sex education -- they have their own incentives that keep the teenagers engaged. We have worked with ABCD in the past in assisting with their safe sex initiatives in the urban community.
  • Increase the likeliness of success in school and career amongst women and girls
  • Decrease the number of physical fights amongst women and girls
  • Increase the number of women involved in the community

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Team Building is the main program we are focusing on getting funding for. We still plan to carry on #WineAboutIt and Community Service, but our membership fees cover for our shirts for community service and #WineAboutIt activities. Our partnership with Dorchester YMCA will help with location and food, but we will need additional funding for operating. We'd like funding for a program coordinator that would be able to manage multiple areas.

CEO Experience
As a developing nonprofit organization (2014), I have had to be on the operation side of things for a very long time (and still am), to make sure that our programs are effective. I have had to create positions, create programs, take away positions & programs, and create legal documents/policies among other types of documents that support our structure. 

I've enrolled in Northeastern University in September 2016 for Nonprofit Management that has taught me so much in so little time. I continue to learn and implement. We have transitioned to the three programs we have now.

Co-CEO Experience

As the Co-founder and Membership Coordinator I have had and continue to have a well rounded experience with our position in the community but as well as with our members. One of the biggest lessons throughout this process of building and creating has been that we are never done and we are never stagnant. Being as involved with the community and as well as the members it has been quite the balance of uplifting our community in many fashions as well as encouraging and inspiring our members to be major assets in said community. This distinct realization has granted myself to improve and implement my passions and talents in a unique way by having the space and opportunity to share and grow as a board member, but most importantly as a community member.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Since our inception in 2014, we have restructured twice. Once in 2015, we revamped the board when past board members weren't demonstrating duty of care. Leadership development has been the biggest problem. We are bringing in more experienced women for areas we need leadership action in and it has been noticeably making a huge difference in every area.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

At this point, I believe funding could help us further continue our operations on a wider scale. With proper experienced positions in place and leadership training implemented where appropriate, we would justly be able to afford a program coordinator that keeps each program going. A small stipend can make a huge difference. We are expecting leadership development to lead to a huge turnaround.
 
We plan to go through an official hiring process for a program coordinator moving forward.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

The BBWC encourages women to be engaged within their community and give back. We are actively engaged in community service projects that focus on bridging the gap in and outside of the urban community. We volunteer for a number of community service initiatives that continue to create a positive impact within our communities. Team Building is an essential activity we have that brings women and teenagers together to self-reflect, build, confide in others and seek support. The BBWC is in partnership with the Dorchester YMCA Teen Program to bring along teenagers into our space of healing and building. We provide an open space for current members of the circle and female teenagers from the YMCA to share current obstacles that may prevent personal growth and join us in our monthly community efforts. It’s an opportunity for mentorship and a safe space for not only women, but also female teenagers, to convene, release, learn, and heal. Every month, we provide teenagers the opportunity to join us for a Team Building activity, and also open up the opportunity to join us for community service outings. A Team Building activity can include a book discussion that involves reading and strategically discussing self-empowering related books that provoke our thoughts and inspire overall self-achievement, or a passion and skill-sharing activity through what we call Play & Parley Night. Each activity has a volunteer coordinator, including a Teen Liaison, 18-years old, for teen empowerment. We believe that our programs will create an impact to not only the women involved in our organization but to the community we serve. We have witnessed the impact our programs have had through the increased number of membership, engagement and partnerships our organization has created. It is our mission to empower women to make a difference, become leaders, and ultimately achieve growth.


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

Methodology:

Team Building
Teen Empowerment with the Dorchester YMCA Teen Program is at least a monthly occurrence where we encourage teenagers to join us in the Team Building activity we implement that month. This can include, healing circles, book club discussions, guest speakers that are relative to obstacles teenagers are facing, and leadership development. Membership is opened to and free for female teenagers. We also occasionally bring teenagers out with us during our community service outings when appropriate. The objectives of this project are to help increase school success and to help improve the mental, physical, and emotional well-being of female youth so that they may make smarter life choices. The project will take one year, beginning in 2018.

The Book Club is an educational and feasible event that allows participants to communicate and exchange respective opinions. Our discussions stem from the book half of the time we meet. The other half is dedicated to discussing questions about life that relate to the book. Through this event, the participants learn relevant principles that can contribute and change the direction of one's future daily activities and habits. We have recently partnered with Casa Myrna to hold a small number of book club sessions every year.


Play & Parley Night is an educational event that allows and encourages both female adults and teens to showcase a personal, creative or entrepreneurial passion through a seminar, workshop, panel, or any type of educational environment. This is an event that educates the public and opens doors of opportunities for speakers. Interactive activity is typically included. Members also have the opportunity of bringing other entities outside of the circle to host a Play & Parley Night, as long as it is resourceful for all. This is an opportunity for both women and teenagers to skill-share and network. There is typically a small fee (or free) to the public. 

Objective: Over the course of twelve months, we plan to develop relationships and mentor 10-25 teenagers through appropriate BBWC activities. We aim to work with 20-30 women in facilitating book club discussions and skill-sharing events. We plan to have focus and see a change in the following areas:

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

-A passionate, knowledgeable and experienced board in the community, including founder that is currently pursuing a Masters of Science in Nonprofit. Management at Northeastern University. 
-A detailed database of volunteers and resources that contribute to our progress.  
-A large database of  legal and other important documents, templates and tools. 

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

Evaluation: Distributing surveys in the beginning, middle and end of the 12-month period that measure growth in:

Career/School success
Confidence (understanding the power of her inner/outer strength)
Leadership (understanding the power one must make a change in herself or in her community)
Team building (understanding benefits of communicating and working with each other)
Courage (understanding benefits of using their voice)
Persistence (developing a positive attitude towards life’s obstacles)
Service (understanding benefits of community engagement)
For one entire year, we will have at least three surveys that we’ll use to measure how successful Team Building is. We will collect data from participants. We find that the quantification evaluation is hard for this initiative, so we decided to use qualitative methods to evaluate.

The survey will include questions that highlights and evaluates: the participants’ own reflections and their feelings on others to evaluate the power of her inner/outer strength, how their daily routines/activities have changed, how their leadership expression has changed, and we will also evaluate if there has been a change of frequency in using their voice to express different perspectives. We will also survey on the success of our initiatives and what we could better work on for the next year. We will analyze each section data to make targeted adjustments to prepare for the next activity. When we analyze this data, we assess how effective our community influence is.

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?

We have accomplished successful programming with our #WineAboutIt (monthly discussions on modern-day women issues), Community Service, and our various Team Building activities (Play & Parley Night and the Book Club). One of our Play & Parley Nights were featured in the Bay State Banner, when member Lyndsey Harper did her styling seminar!
 
We have not successfully carried out Teen Empowerment as yet.
