Rebel Nell provides a strong support system for the women that we hire. We aim to help them transition through challenging situations, overcome prohibitive barriers, and empower them to transition to an independent life. At Rebel Nell, we've launched T.E.A.; Teach. Empower. Achieve. T.E.A. is a non-profit that is dedicated to upholding the beliefs shared by Rebel Nell and working closely with our employees to further the objective of enhancing their lives. Our approach is to create a personalized and in-depth teaching program to provide the necessary life-skills needed for the women we hire to transition from a life of dependence to self-reliance. 
Your donation helps us partner with a diverse base of advisors that lend their knowledge and skill-set to teaching our team. Additionally, through our micro-loan program, your donation will be used toward assisting our team members with overcoming financial challenges that act as a barrier to leading an independent life. 

Women's Empowerment 

We offer regular mentoring sessions to assist in confidence building and self realization. Our women's empowerment advisor works with the Rebel Nell team and helps them recognize their inner strength and beauty. Additionally, she challenges their emotional barriers in order to help them realize their highest potential. 


Strengths Finding 
Utilizing CliftonStrengths assessment and a professional strengths coach, our team members learn their natural talents and how to use them to maximize their potential. By doing a deep dive into their personality traits, we hope to empower our ladies to set and achieve goals that match their strengths and what makes them unique.


Financial Literacy and Management 

We believe that the key to independence is through financial management. We provide financial literacy and management classes to give our team members a better understanding of their financial situations and present a course toward financial wellness. We understand that each person is different, as are their financial situations. Our dedicated financial advisor guides each woman based on their individual needs. We have regular meetings to ensure continuous progress toward each team member's financial goal.


Goal Setting
In collaboration with VizBe, we work on "whole self" goal setting for both short-term and long-term goals. In this class, we identify areas of of each individual's life that requires more attention. From there, our team members set S.M.A.R.T. goals and choose an accountability partner that is responsible for encouraging them in their quest to achieve their goals.



Our entrepreneurship classes occur throughout the year. During these classes we explore how creative and innovative thinking can lead to entrepreneurial opportunities. We learn how to turn a passion project into a business, while also understanding the economics of running a business. It is our hope that one day these classes will result in a new woman owned business, furthering the progress of our ladies and their impact on Detroit.
