YOUNG WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
This program provides high school students in grades 10, 11, and 12 the opportunity to develop the skills necessary for pursuing leadership roles during and after high school (ie. summer jobs, internships, and future careers). This program will run for a total of 10 weeks and will focus on 3 main areas: SELF-AWARENESS, LEADERSHIP SKILLS & MENTORSHIP.
Each week we will share a new life skill that will help these girls learn more about themselves and others and will also learn from successful women in various careers and have the unique opportunity to be paired with a successful female mentor who will share their knowledge and experience and provide support to their mentees. Our past participants have LOVED this component of the program and grow so much from the experience. Many of our participants have developed great relationships with their mentors and are still in touch with each other to this day. This program will help prepare the young women for applying for summer jobs, internships and future careers beyond college.
Topics covered will include:
Week 1: Leadership & Courage- Mentor/Mentee Introductions
Week 2: Understanding your "Social Styles"
Week 3: Meet with your Mentor
Week 4: Learning about you- "Emotional Intelligence"
Week 5: Meet with your Mentor
Week 6: Strengths & Career Inventory
Week 7: Networking & Job Interviewing
Week 8: Meet with your Mentor
Week 9: Goal Setting
Week 10: Vision Board Creation & Presentation
Each week your teen girls will enjoy spending time together discussing age relevant topics that they may be experiencing challenges with. They get to share and hear from other peers. Our sessions are interactive, fun, engaging and thought provoking. Our plan is to work on an on-going creative project that the girls will love taking home on their last session. Your daughters can attend on their own or with a friend.

5th through 8th Grades
Our GIRLS WITH LEADERSHIP program for girls in 5th grade and middle school offers weekly workshop series which gives girls a comfortable environment to share and discuss things that are on their mind. Often girls at this age are adamant about attending workshops, especially if they don't know other participants but they love it once they attend one. They often realize they are not alone in how they feel and other middle school girls have the same worries they do.
