BioEndeavor is a non-profit organization that seeks to empower youth, adults and educators through global citizenship. We empower young women to succeed by leading for good including through--personal development and finding purpose, soft skills development, as well as charting their education and career paths. We equally engage youth through social entrepreneurship, green innovation and design--empowering youth to take a leading role on sustainable development and climate action through innovation. We work with educators and parents to create meaningful learning experiences based on purpose for the whole student/child.

She Designs the Way Forward is a 6-day virtual program to support young women through a journey of:

  • finding purpose 

  • creating a vision of one’s future self

The program was created by Dr. Minna Allarakhia an alumna of MIT, Brown University and the University of Waterloo.  She created this program, because every young woman needs a champion.
