I Choose to Win held its end-of-summer culmination ceremony for its Empowered Uth three-week internship program at WSFS Bank in Maple Glen, PA on July 29th. Five students Katie B., Essentia M., Alistasia M., Nyah I., and Da’moni H. completed assignments that have shaped social engagement, gala promotions and story-telling for the nonprofit.
With I Choose To Win’s leadership development focus, students gained valuable experience brainstorming ideas, amplifying their voices, presenting their plans and rallying support from their peers. Additionally, I Choose To Win helped students learn new marketable skill sets in researching, interviewing, developing content, marketing, video editing, and performing outreach efforts, which align with our mission to develop a pathway toward economic independence.
These young women have shown unwavering dedication and passion for their individual projects. Their creativity and drive to inspire each other have not only brought about meaningful impact to this year’s program but have also set an example for others to follow.
Empowered Uth provides a unique opportunity for like-minded individuals to connect and collaborate. Through this three week mentorship program, young leaders further commit to their personal growth and development; all under the mentorship of our founder, Melonie Butler. This program is supported by the generous contributions of our donors, sponsors and individual contributors. To invest in programs empowering young women, you may click here.
