This two-week camp is designed specifically for Black high school girls and other girls of color who have big dreams for their lives and careers. During this experience, we celebrate stories and successes of women of color; actively engage girls in workshops, projects, college tours and mock college classes; and introduce girls to the inner workings of government, business, and entrepreneurship. Girls are also given opportunities to secure internships and jobs, receive intentional coaching to enhance their understanding of networks, and plan their future career success.
Despite the great strides African American women have made in education, many continue to experience higher rates of unemployment than white women and earn less than their male counterparts and white women, leaving a growing portion of our population more vulnerable to poverty and its implications. Let Her Lead focuses on addressing these issues, and moves Black girls from stuck to soaring! We help girls embrace who they uniquely are and realize their infinite potential.
