Our goal is to ‘Create Women Leaders One Girl at a Time’. We accomplish this goal by sending high school graduating girls abroad for the summer to teach them leadership skills while they volunteer at company abroad based on their career choice. We designed our program based on the belief that you have to know how to lead yourself before you can lead others and the best leaders have high self-esteem and self-confidence.
