Who We Are
Women Empowering Women
In Her Shoes Foundation (IHSF) is a 501(c)3 organization that is dedicated to making a positive impact on society by empowering women and girls. IHSF connects women of various backgrounds through programs and events focused on improving our communities and spurring personal and professional growth.
READY SET GIRLS ACADEMY
OUR FLAGSHIP PROGRAM
The flagship Ready Set Girls Academy (RSGA) program empowers teen girls to live their best possible lives.
The goal is to give young women the positive tools to navigate the pressures and expectations they encounter in today’s society.
The curriculum-based program is structured around four themes: leadership, healthy living, social skills and lifestyle.
In addition to our Ready Set Girls Academy program, In Her Shoes Foundation offers two other programs that help to unite women through education and community impact.
If you are interested in making a positive impact on the lives of women and girls in the community, or simply want to connect with other like-minded women (and men!), there are several ways you can get involved.

IHSF's membership program helps fund our causes while providing opportunities for education and community.
