Support, Prepare, Empower Aspiring Kids
SPEAK programs provide support and soft and hard skills to girls who are immigrants and first- generation American citizens as they prepare to transition from high school to college, including by helping them look into colleges, courses of study, and potential college-to-career pathways. We want to help each girl make the best decision for herself by providing her the increased social and cultural capital necessary to reach her goals.
A more diverse future workforce with more women of color of all backgrounds in positions of power across a variety of careers.
