We are excited to announce the launch of our Young Women Leadership Academy (YWLA); a 2-hour Saturday program for high school girls from the Guyanese community. The curriculum combines leadership education with mentoring and workshops. Last Saturday students and parents joined us at our location at the Queens Central Library for orientation and information session. Applications are still being accepted until January 27, 2018. Apply HERE today!
Inspiring the next generation of female leader, @ggrfoundation presents the Young Women Academy Academy! #ggrf #ywla #ggrywla #guyanesegirlsrock
Our leadership course is based on three (3) key areas: building identity, encouraging self-confidence, and developing leadership skills. Through a series of instructor-led lessons and workshop, these aspiring leader will also learn life skills that will help them to thrive and succeed at school and beyond, and provide them with the tools to become true influencer in their communities. Students will also enjoy cultural outings and site visits to the office or business of successful women in positions of leadership. For more information, read about program HERE: or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need to move beyond the idea that girls can be leaders and create the expectation that they should be leaders.
