Our Young Leadership Board is an enthusiastic group of young professionals dedicated to continuing the Girls Hope mission. This energetic organization supports Girls Hope by hosting fundraisers and planning events with our scholars. Through the Young Leadership Board, members are presented with a number of professional development opportunities, including the chance to gain experience in event planning, fundraising, and media relations. They also expand their professional network by developing relationships with members of our Board of Directors.
In addition to holding fundraisers, our Young Leadership Board hosts a number of events with our scholars to provide them with opportunities to build confidence and self-esteem while participating in fun activities that enhance education and cultural competence.
The Young Leadership Board has held a number of successful fundraisers including the annual Hearts & Hopes parties, kickball games, and happy hours. They have joined our scholars in participating in home-style dinner and discussions, ice skating trips, cookie decorating parties, etiquette dinners, graduation parties, office tours, and job shadow days.
