Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders
Advancing diversity in leadership through college and career preparedness
Every One Needs a Role Model
SPEAK Mentorship develops the social and cultural capital of immigrant girls to empower them to become future workforce leaders. Our combination of multiple visible role models, increases girls’ self-efficacy, provides access to information and opportunities, and finally leads to successful and healthy post-secondary pathways.
A Community Like None Other
“Through the community we develop at the school, we talk about issues affecting women and how we can solve these together to ensure all women achieve and succeed. SPEAK’s impact of developing a community throughout their programs gives us the safe space to learn and grow into our whole selves, and motivates us to work together to lift everyone up.”
