Diamonds in The RUFF 2016
On Saturday, September 17, 2016, Transformationz Inc. will be hosting its 8th annual conference focusing on at-risk teen girls in the metropolitan Detroit area titled “Diamonds In The RUFF, Helping Girls Discover Their True Worth”. The purpose of this conference is to equip these young ladies with tools needed to navigate life’s challenges by providing educational workshops and entertainment to address the challenges they face on a daily basis. This event will take place from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at Detroit Recovery Project, 1145 W. Grand Blvd., Detroit, Michigan 48208. We are expecting approximately 200 participants and lunch will be provided. We are seeking your help with this awesome effort to provide assistance and guidance to teen girls in the Detroit metro area.
As you’ve seen in the news, how our youth are often targets of senseless violence, our teen girls are plagued with unplanned pregnancies, crime, bullying and the vast majority suffer from the effects of the city’s failed educational system, (lack of social support & guidance) just to name a few.
The founder of Transformationz Inc., Mrs. Lanetia Norris, LMSW knows first hand the issues that plague Detroit’s youth through her own challenges growing up in the city. Having personally been knocked down by life’s circumstances and having the courage and ability to get back up has been her strong suit. Sharing her story with others has been her crowning achievement because it inspires her audience to believe that change is possible, if only they dare to believe. Out of this strong belief and conviction, Mrs. Norris created the “Diamonds in The RUFF” conference. This will be an afternoon devoted to celebrating and honoring these teens.
