The Academy started June 19th in San Francisco and the girls will flew to Paris on June 24th to continue their 7 weeks of cultural immersion and leadership-development projects. Although we accepted high school girls last year, we are only accepting applications from 2nd and 3rd year University girls this year but we would love to share the experience from 2017 Academy with you. Meet our Graduates!
After completing a 20 hours of French language, communications, and investment management courses in the Academy in San Francisco, they were flown to Paris continuing the Academy with 40 hours of French language immersion and life strategies by native Parisian instructors from the Wi-School Paris. The Academy continued with their volunteerships at Leaders League 3 days per week in addition to investment management, and other leadership development projects. The girls also had 4 days a week to enjoy traveling throughout Europe which is also an important part of their international experience.
Prior to returning to the US, the rally fundraisers had the opportunity to meet our Academy scholars when our rally arrived to Monaco. This provided the girls an opportunity to talk to possible mentors and rev the engine of a Ferrari in front of the Monte Carlo Casino! The girls also had an incredible opportunity to meet the legendary Baroness Floella Benjamin of the House of Lords UK!
At completion of the Leadership Academy, the girls have solid experience with investment/budget management, communicating authentically, using their intuition as a decision-making tool, and basic French. The experience has surely change their lives forever and begin their path to becoming our future Women Leaders.
