The Envision Lead Grow program is now virtual and focuses on social justice, college prep, STEM, and entrepreneurship. NO COST to parents. See links below for the details. Please forward to anyone who is looking for productive and structured learning opportunities for girls this summer. FYI. The program is now in 48 states, so please feel free to forward to friends and family in other states.
Envision Lead Grow (ELG), a non profit, teaches girls from across the country about the importance of female leadership and entrepreneurship. This summer, they are partnering with a few community organizations, such as local chapters of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated and The Boys and Girls Clubs of America to reach girls across the USA.
Many summer camps are cancelled this summer, but ELG wants to offer two programs for our members that have daughters between the 4th grade and rising college freshman. These virtual programs, which will be held in July of 2020, are offered at no cost. We know that because of COVID-19, many parents are looking for educational and fun ways to engage their children this summer with the lack of in-person activities.
The first is the Boss Up Empowerment Conference. During this interactive, four-day virtual conference, it will teach high school students the importance of using their voice and platforms to effect positive change. ELG will cover topics like activism, leadership, college readiness, and entrepreneurship. From this conference, they want girls to take away the knowledge of how to propel their communities forward and develop lasting success for themselves.
The second program is for elementary and middle school girls. ELG is on a mission to create girl bosses across the country. They currently have girls in 30 states, and this year they have the goal of reaching in all 48 contiguous states. ELG does this through their staple 4-part scholarship program that begins with their Virtual Immersion Summer Camp. During camp, they’ll will cover topics like activism, leadership, college readiness, and entrepreneurship. From this conference, girls will take away the knowledge of how to propel their communities forward and develop lasting success for themselves. Girls will learn how entrepreneurship can transform communities of poverty into communities of prosperity. In 2018, female founders raised just 2.3% of the total venture capital funding invested in startups, and black women raised only .0006% of that. ELG knows that they can transform the culture of business today by planting the seed of entrepreneurship in girls early.
