So in honor of the sisterhood and to keep the momentum going while training the next generation of leaders, I picked Step Up Women’s Network, a non-profit that empowers teen girls from under-resourced communities by pairing them with professional women. Today’s leaders help train the leaders of tomorrow through after-school and weekend programs, as well as one-on-one mentoring. The 15-year old program doesn’t stop there. It continues the learning curve by hosting professional development workshops for women.
Step Up is a national organization with offices in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
I bet Step Up gets bi-partisan support!
I'll be back with a new cause on Saturday. Between now and then, I hope to teach myself how to create a calendar-style lead in. Maybe I can find a mentor.
