Apply to be in the 2012-2013 Strong Leaders program

Posted by Molly Brenner Jul 7, 2012

Strong Women, Strong Girls supports girls and women at three critical life transitions: Girls entering middle school, college women entering the workforce, and professional women becoming leaders. The Strong Leaders program focuses on the leadership development of the undergraduate women and professional women in the Strong Women, Strong Girls community. In this program, SWSG pairs professional women with the exceptional college women who serve as SWSG mentors to elementary-school girls.

Professional women who volunteer as Leadership Coaches have opportunities to:

  • Support the leadership and professional development of young women
  • Gain transferable coaching skills
  • Join a network of peer professional women looking to make a difference

Companies who sponsor their employees’ participation in the program have opportunities to:

  • Support the leadership development of their employees
  • Give back to women and girls in their community
