Our first SPEAK Summit, held March 31st in Newark, NJ, ended Women's History month with powerful narratives from both women and girls. A successful first event, all attendees surveyed said they look forward to another SPEAK event bringing them closer to others within the SPEAK community so they can feel further empowered.
SPEAK launched partnership with Akanksha Foundation, with its Speaker Series Leadership and Empowerment Course to provide more direct pathways to economic empowerment and positions of leadership.
Monique, Lylia, and Ayoko presented at the Harvard Alumni of Color Conference! This was a great opportunity for these young girls to get exposed to the ideas, discourse, and the environment of an such an institution. They worked hard to prepare a strong workshop, and the experience was inspirational for them, their peers and families.
Our Executive Director, Hetal Jani, presented on the impact of programs like SPEAK at the 2018 National Mentoring Summit. The presentation was titled "The Role of Culture in Mentoring Immigrants and Children of Immigrants" and spoke about the importance of culturally responsive mentor matches for immigrant youth. She also visited with stakeholders on Capitol Hill to further investment in youth mentoring programs.
