Who We Are
Altered NWLA is a non-profit agency whose mission is “to provide a network for young women to access information, tools and resources needed to ALTER their path in life and positively impact their community.” Altered started because 2 women had a passion to significantly empower the lives of young women in Shreveport-Bossier City.
The name ALTERED was the result of a strategic planning exercise where we affirmed what we wanted our young women to Feel, Be and Live. It is collective summary of our statement of affirmation that “I Am…”
“Our passion is inspiring young women to reach higher and dream bigger because when young women are given a chance they can impact their community.”
“As women it’s painful to see the struggles that most young women are faced with, as we have had our own struggles. It’s only when a woman becomes empowered that she can face her challenges and ALTER her LIFE positively. Young women increase their chances of succeeding when they have Mentors to provide Real-Life examples.”
