MISSION AND HISTORY
The mission of GLOW 414 Inc. is to assist with the advancement of at-risk disadvantaged youth, by providing education, counseling, and mentoring services.
Our vision at GLOW 414 Inc. is to assist youth girls with a successful transition into adulthood and becoming successful women, with services tailored for each participant’s needs.
While growing up in the inner-city parts of Milwaukee and in a family where mental health was dominate, Mickell was motivated to become educated in mental health and determined to break the stigma surrounding mental health and the inner city. Later, Mrs. Daniels was fortunate to take advantage of outreach programs and family support which helped support her journey to further her education. “I wanted to become educated in mental health to tear down barriers in my community and bring awareness to the youth and families I serve. Our youth and their families needed to learn the importance of mental health coming from someone who is from their very own community, while also learning the tools to rise above the stereotypes that trap us daily."
Throughout the past 9 years she has worked in the social work field. Driven to bridge the gap between the expectations of youth once they became adults and the actual tools that are installed in them, she decided to develop her own organization GLOW 414 Inc. GLOW stands for Girls Learning to become Outstanding Women! "This gap needs to be closed to ensure our youth are becoming successful adults and I want to be a part of this change." She believes in empowering youth to own their ability to become the best version of themselves, while learning the tools that will guide them a lifetime.
With the strength, sacrifice and commitment of GLOW 414 Inc., the community, and other organizations Greater Milwaukee can rise up and our youth will be the driven force!
