New for 2012: Girls Leadership Track

This unique opportunity for girls emphasizes the development of authentic leadership. The program is built upon St. Catherine University’s The Reflective Woman model, which focuses on aesthetics, ethics, social justice and what it means to lead a meaningful life.

Geared toward girls entering 6th-8th grade in fall 2012, the program requires that youth are accompanied by an “adult champion” – their mothers, grandmothers, aunts or other mentors. The Young Girls Leadership Track will provide tools and resources for girls to carry their leadership journey forward. Participants are free to attend any or all of the classes in the track.
