62% of U.S. girls report no connection with local women leaders outside of their family – we change that.
The EmpowHERment Saturday Leadership Academy connects teen girls with local women leaders. The academy is open to any girl in grades 6-12, and participants do not have to be a mentee in the EmpowHERment mentoring program. The leadership academy takes place on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 2-4pm. The Junior League of Charlotte is our Leadership Academy partner for 2016-2017. Leadership Academy locations can vary depending upon the activities and session emphasis.
While any girl in grades 6-12 is invited to attend the leadership activities, space is limited to first come, first serve by signing up in advance of each monthly program. All girls who participate in a leadership academy session must bring a signed parent permission form. To sign up for the monthly programming and complete the guardian participation form, please join our email list-serve.
