“Creating Women Leaders One Girl at a Time”
Prancing Ponies Foundation through its Leadership-Abroad Academy sends high school graduating girls abroad to expose them to the life changing experience of international travel. We believe that there is no faster way to increase self-esteem and self-confidence than to travel abroad. Having a strong sense of self and the confidence to take action towards your goals is the most important of all foundational skills in the development of women leaders and Prancing Ponies is focused on helping as many young girls as possible to achieve these goals.
We also believe that great leadership starts from having the ability to lead yourself first. To support the concept of leading from within, there are four components to our leadership development program: Communication/Language Skills, Project Planning/Execution, Life Strategies, and Investment Management. Each component is integral for developing strong leadership skills in each girl.
We are pleased to announce that our Leadership-Abroad Leadership Academy will send 5 girls to Paris, France for 7 weeks this summer.
After completing a 20 hours of French language, communications, and investment management courses in the Academy in San Francisco, they will be flown to Paris continuing the Academy with 40 hours of French language immersion and life strategies. The Academy is continued with their internships 3 days per week based on their career interests, investment management, and other leadership development projects. The girls will also have 4 days a week to enjoy traveling throughout Europe which is also an important part of their international experience.
Prior to returning to the US, the rally fundraisers will have the opportunity to meet our Fundraising Rally Drivers when our rally arrives to Monaco. This will provide the girls an opportunity to talk to possible mentors and take a ride in Ferraris on their way to the airport the next day.
When the Leadership-Abroad Academy completes, the girls will have solid experience with investment management, communicating authentically, using their intuition as a decision-making tool, and fluently speak French. The experience will surely change their lives forever and start them on the path to becoming our future Women Leaders.
