THE CHANGEMAKERS COUNCIL
Are you in 8th - 12th grade?
Are you interested in being a leader and taking action in the world?
The Changemakers Council is our signature program, a group of young women in 8th - 12th-grade who participate in a year-long journey of learning and mentorship to build and utilize your leadership gifts in the community. The council has monthly mentoring meetings, a series of 6 leadership workshops, creative experiences (programs with professional artists, Broadway empowerment days, artistic field trips) and community events where you mentor other girls and participate as teaching assistants, hosts and speakers.
You also share your story and use your voice, writing reflections and blogs, creating content for social media and developing a “Take Action” project, an individualized, issue-focused program, which gives you the opportunity to positively impact your community. “Take Action” projects focus on a societal challenge of each council member’s choosing and teaches you, with the support of an adult mentor, how to set and accomplish your goals by brainstorming, developing, organizing and implementing your projects.
Finally, at the end of your year-long journey, you work as a team to develop and lead a 5-day summer empowerment arts program for local elementary school girls, sharing your leadership and learnings with them in a creative, interactive, fun environment.
We are looking for young women to join our team for the 2023-2024 school year (September - June).
2023-2024 program fee: $500.00*
