"Inspiring young women to grow as leaders through practical skills training and real-life examples."
Holy Names Academy is excited to offer HNA’s very own Leadership Academy for young women entering Grades 7 or 8, and any student starting Grade 9 at Holy Names in the Fall of 2019. We will be discussing Becoming by Michelle Obama and developing leadership skills so young women can increase their opportunities to lead, achieve, and succeed within their own communities. Space is limited to 30 participants, register early.
Using Michelle Obama's example, we will explore various topics related to leadership (identifying mentors, external vs. internal motivation, the value of education and support networks) in addition to helping students acquire practical skills for how to grow one's voice, one's confidence, and one's ability to participate more fully in various types of leadership roles through small group activities and discussions.
Students should read the book (Becoming by Michelle Obama) prior to camp. Each camper will receive a t-shirt, and all campers are asked to bring a snack and water bottle as well.
A $90 registration-processing fee will be charged for all cancellations.
