We love ensuring amazing and eyeopening experiences for our EmpowHer Academy Girls. This December has been a series of “firsts” for many of our girls. Thanks to the financial support of our donors we were able to send more than 100 of our 8th and 9th grade girls to a performance of Hot Chocolate Nutcracker, directed and produced by Debbie Allen. This was the first time seeing a live performance for more than 90% of our girls. Many left inspired to want to express themselves through art.
Partnering with Girls Build LA we sent 140 seventh grade girls from our partner middle schools, UCLA Experimental School, Environmental Charter, Inglewood and Environmental Charter, Gardena to participate in the Leadership Summit which featured amazing women like Hillary Clinton, Senator, Kamala Harris, Bozama St. John, Chief Marketing Officer of Uber and so many other role models.
