The transition to middle school is often challenging for Black girls and other girls of color due to massive fundamental achievement gaps. The supportive hands-on environment of this camp strives to meet this challenge by fostering increased independence, self-esteem and confidence in girls through fun interactive experiences, workshops, taking part in Girl Action Teams, learning from guest speakers, and field trips.
This two-week residential program will develop the skills and capabilities that will enable girls to speak up in class and social settings, solve problems creatively and communicate with confidence that will invigorate the leadership potential in all girls. Ultimately, this skill building is expected to significantly contribute to girls gaining leadership positions at an early age. Future leaders are shaped at She Can Lead!
