Athena’s Warehouse is a nonprofit dedicated to educating, inspiring, and awakening the inherent power within teen girls in the greater NE Atlanta, GA area.
At Athena’s Warehouse, we celebrate the power of being a girl! We provide a safe space for girls to explore important topics like healthy relationships, domestic violence, racism, equity, body image and career planning. We amplify the voices of girls by helping them create films on community issues, and encourage them to use art as a form of healing. By practicing yoga the young women begin to connect their bodies and minds. Each year we award scholarships to support girls to allow them to continue their education beyond high school.
Our program participants go on to become leaders in their communities, college graduates, and role models for other young women.
A daughter to immigrant parents, founder Bee Nguyen watched her father work two jobs while her mother, with limited English proficiency and financial resources, raised five girls in an unfamiliar country. Her parents, who fled Vietnam, emphasized the value of education and economic independence. Though she did not follow more traditional career paths encouraged by her family, she discovered within her a talent for entrepreneurship and an innate love for women and girls. Combining these passions, she created Athena’s Warehouse in 2009.
Thank you to the foundations, organizations, and partners who make our work possible.
