Advocate for a future leader

The Eleanor Roosevelt Center needs your help in identifying promising female leaders and encouraging them to apply to the Girls' Leadership Worldwide.

Girls' Leadership Worldwide is an international leadership development program for girls currently in the 9th and 10th grades. During the nine-day, residential program, girls from diverse cultures and backgrounds come together in Hyde Park to engage in workshops and activities designed to fully awaken the leader within them, using the leadership model of Eleanor Roosevelt.

Each of the nine days of the program will focus on a different area: leadership, self-discovery, human rights and social justice, mentoring, citizenship and civic participation and sisterhood.

Applications are available now at http://www.ervk.org/. Financial aid is also available.

The application deadline is March 9. For more information, visit the website or call Sara Nowlin, Program Director, at 845-229-5302.
