Intern Leadership Program
A 16-week Internship Program for girls aging out of the foster care system and impacted by mass incarceration. The goal of the program is to invest in the professional and leadership development of young women of color that are marginalized by society. As a result of this program, young women have increased financial security, access to job opportunities that pay living-wages, and skills that contribute to their professional development. After completion, participants have workforce experience and are better prepared to join the workforce.
