Mar 30, 2019 11:30am ‐ Mar 30, 2019 12:00pm


Description

Teenage girls at-risk for poor academic achievement and dropout due to limited vocational training and leadership opportunities were invited to participate in the VANTAGE (Vocational Awareness and Team-Based Girls Empowerment) program. The purpose of VANTAGE was to create a positive change in these young girls’ lives through vocational training, career exploration, leadership skill development, and mentorship from local women leaders. Outcome data from the program evaluation will be shared.
