What are Roots?

  • A means of anchorage into solid ground.

  • The essential core of a living being.

  • An underlying support network that allows one to flourish


Our Objective: 

Roots is the first program launched by The Journey, a nonprofit founded here in Allen County in December 2018.  This program will focus on providing support, life skills, and peer-to-peer mentoring for young women aged 16-26 through presentations, hands-on learning opportunities, and reflections. Girls will also have the chance to volunteer and participate in community activities as they become available. Reflection topics will focus on issues that young people navigate in their daily lives, including anger, depression, motivation, collaboration, professional development, relationships, time management, school, work, and play.
