Emerging Leaders Fellowship

Building on the success of Love GIRLS Magazine (LGM), “The Emerging Leaders Fellowship” will provide young women 13 and over with support and mentorship to launch a small business or community project. Twelve girls in all will complete a workshop to prepare them for “Pitch Day” to a panel. Based on the strength of their presentation they will receive funding of $250-500 managed by LGM. Program participants work with a budget, a project mentor and access to in-kind resources from community partners. The project concludes with a reception for fellows in which they report their outcomes to the community. IWF funding supports this bold, new project.
