DETERMINED. AMBITIOUS. WOMEN. NETWORKING is a 501(c)3 and a three part component organization, that consists of a mentoring program, a sisterhood and a networking outlet. Our Mission is to mentor the youth in our community, all while creating a sisterhood that seizes networking opportunities.
Dedication, consistency and devotion are required to become a mentor or mentee within the program. The overall goal is to build life long relationships that will play a role in the success rate of our youth while also propelling them to a path to greatness.
D.A.W.N was conceived in 2016 by a concerned parent in response to the severe bullying her oldest daughter was experiencing in school. Rena Camille decided it was time to use her passion, voice and creativity to bring young girls together and offer them a positive alternative. A few phone calls to other concerned friends, parents, entrepreneurs and more, (majority of the mentors are in their 30's) who themselves were looking for a way to give back and help, and this amazing outreach was born. The first event took place in June of 2017 and it has grown from there.
D.A.W.N is now a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has grown to 80 members. They host free workshops and take the kids on free outings to help alleviate financial pressures that may reside in their low income households. Their workshops are fun and educational and the girls are always fed.
Thus far self funded, and with over 100 new requests on the waiting list, D.A.W.N would love to finally accept more young girls, (and mentors) but needs the communities help in raising the funds to do so!
PLEASE give a tax free donation today, to help expand our dreams of helping the community! We THANK YOU in advance!

Mentees volunteering at Senior Homes!
The Mentees & Mentors are doing big things in 2018 and bigger things are planned for 2019!
Check us out!
In March of 2018 D.A.W.N launched a fundraiser with the goal of teaching the girls how to:
- interact with other girls positively
- talk out their issues
- respect others space
- how to get along and handle things positively when personality differences
We divided ourselves into 6 teams, and challenged each team to raise the most funds. The teams created unique products to sell and the competition was on! Video commercials were put together by each team and blasted on social media. The public support was inspiring.
With the funds earned we treated the entire team (mentors and Mentees) to an all expenses paid trip in the beautiful Colorado Mountains to Winter Parks, YMCA of The Rockies. The girls skated, played dodge ball, volley ball, board games, ping pong, Foosball. They hiked, rock climbed, made S'mores and partied. We rented out the entire pool for them to really enjoy each other.
Mentor Jade Wicks our fundraiser MVP and the mentees were all smiles!
Our 2018 Summer Fundraiser was a Great Success!!
D.A.W.N has set its sights on giving families that could use a handduring the holiday season a nice Christmas!
in 2017, our goal was to give 5 families a Christmas to remember! Teaching our young mentees that giving back and passing blessings forward is key! The community rallied around our facebook fundraiser and we surpassed our goal. Every dime was used to purchase game boys, watches clothing, shoes clothing mp3 players, and more. It truly takes a village!
We are gearing up for the 2018 holiday season and are accepting donations to make this possible.
We thank you in advance for your loving support! ❤
