At the Leadership Academy, within a community of peers and an inclusive, exploratory learning environment, young women from marginalized backgrounds discover their inner spark, nurture their leadership potential, while gaining knowledge, skills, and a broad understanding of their opportunities. The Academy program is provided at the Center, a safe space to socialize, study, and grow among friends. Students who are at a distance from the Center, attend Satellite programs.
The Academy provides 5 certificates to develop professional and life skills, Next Steps scholarships to join area colleges, internships and training programs, and an Alumnae Association for continued friendship, support and opportunities to mentor new students. WEP’s doors are always open.
