Through Eye of the Artists Foundation, Annie Ruth reaches out very effectively to teen girls through group sessions at various venues and through her "My Sista My Friend" teen workshops and conferences. This daylong mentoring and leadership development program has touched the lives of nearly 1000 girls. The girls participate in discussions led by local women experts on topics such as Being a Teen 101, HIV & Young Women, Sex vs. Intimacy, A More Beautiful You, Young Women of Worth, Staying Professional, Team Building, Technology 101, Dangers of the Internet, Straight Talk with a Brother, Managing Your Money, and Financial Aid for College.
Annie Ruth’s mentoring does not end when the workshop ends. She involves others in community outreach-- going to numerous venues throughout the region. Because Annie Ruth openly shares the hardships she has faced in her own life, teen girls trust her; they in turn pour out their deepest fears to her and in so doing overcome them.
