A blast from the past programs!

Thank you to the facilitators who volunteered their time, and services to meet the needs of our participants.



Chosen participants will have the opportunity to participate in a mini shark tank business pitch for a cash prize!


CONGRATULATIONS TO Alayna Johnson & Kamrin Johnson




I am beyond excited to facilitate the Girl Boss program and implement strategies to help build leadership skills and help young ladies discover an entrepreneurship mindset. Participants will have the opportunity to come up with an effective development process for products or services to pitch their business idea for a cash prize at the end of the program. The design of my program will convey all stages involved in designing and developing your product idea and turning your idea into a reality. In addition, developing leadership skills to excel your business. 

I encourage young ladies to sign and participate in the upcoming Girl Boss Programming! I can assure you; you don’t want to miss this amazing experience of a lifetime.
