Athena's Warehouse is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to educating, inspiring, and empowering teen girls.
Through research-based programs, advocacy initiatives, and positive female role models, we equip girls with the tools and resources to become healthy, confident, and independent young women. Our workshops, taught by trained professionals, focus on key teen issues, such as healthy eating, positive body image, teen pregnancy and STD prevention, domestic violence, media literacy, and career preparation.
Those we aid attend Title I high schools, and many are minorities from low-income, immigrant families. By serving at-risk communities, we encourage disadvantaged girls to realize and celebrate their full potential. Since 2009, Athena's Warehouse has awarded three merit-based scholarships and assisted nearly 300 girls aged 16-18 in Atlanta, Georgia, and we are committed to serving hundreds more.
When Bee Nguyen started Athena’s Warehouse in 2009, she wove together concepts she felt were simple yet powerful. Recycling gently used cocktail and bridesmaid dresses by donating them to high school girls created the opportunity for women to connect with at-risk girls from the community. She believed that all girls should have the opportunity to empower themselves through public service and the personal support of female mentors and role models. Within a year, Bee's dream was realized. Today, Athena's Warehouse has expanded to include an after-school enrichment program and other initiatives that champion education, awareness, and opportunity.
