Conversations With Future Leaders® Program
The Conversations With Future Leaders® mentoring program was created in January of 2012 to empower young women, particularly of elementary, middle, and high school age. The program focuses on hair, colorism, and body size, which is not usually a focus in classrooms but does drive the politics of lunchrooms and playgrounds. Explore the Lesson Plan that builds the self-esteem of our future leaders.
