STARS Citywide Girls Youth Summit

On April 12, 2017, the STARS Citywide Girls Initiative, a nonprofit collaborative funded by the New York City Council, will host its 3rd Annual Girls Leadership Summit at the High School of Fashion Industries in Manhattan. The Summit targets middle school and high school girls from the city’s five boroughs and will offer a full day of speakers and seminars in career awareness, college access, and leadership development run by nine of the city’s leading nonprofits. The STARS Citywide Girls Initiative helps girls and young women of color overcome barriers to success, grow emotionally, academically and physically stronger, and develop as leaders in their communities.
