The Black Girls Rock! Queens’ Camp for Leadership & Excellence has started an Indiegogo campaign to raise money provide dynamic master classes that promote the active leadership, intellectual, social, emotional and positive identity development of teenage girls from around the globe.
The Black Girls Rock! Queens’ Camp for Leadership & Excellence is basically a two week summer camp for girls that teaches them to be awesome. It cultivates and supports this budding generation of female global thought leaders through programs that reinforce the talent, integrity and knowledge needed to lead successfully.
Their diverse participants come from various socioeconomic backgrounds and geographic areas, yet share a foundation of cultural pride, a deep determination to excel and a will to use their brilliance to impact the world! Their innovative camp curriculum is designed to help participants overcome fears that may hinder them from owning their power and enables participants to refine their skills in writing, public speaking, project management and creativity. This is just the type of program that our young women need to make sure that someone is in their corner, championing for them. The camp will be help at Barnard College and Columbia University from July 18-August 2. Will the special young woman in your life be a part of this?
From the fundraiser:
Dear friends and supporters,
In 2006, I founded BLACK GIRLS ROCK! to combat images that I felt insulted the integrity of Black women and girls. In addition to our award show, I started a local youth enrichment program, which has blossomed into an international leadership camp. As a mentor and youth advocate, I’ve seen the tremendous benefit of mentoring our girls through holistic art education, critical cultural literacy, leadership development, civic engagement and entrepreneurship workshops that empower them to know and love themselves, to imagine their futures and to be active agents in creating a world where the next generation of girls can be shot callers in diverse professions.
I am excited to announce that we will host our annual BLACK GIRLS ROCK! QUEENS’ CAMP FOR LEADERSHIP & EXCELLENCE for the fourth consecutive year! The camp is a two-week intensive designed to fortify dynamic girls from around the world who are in good academic standing, who exhibit strong leadership capabilities, and who have a vested interest in their personal and professional development. The summer camp will be held at BARNARD COLLEGE and COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY from July 18-August 2, 2014.
