Norfolk businesswoman launches 7-City Bus Tour to inspire and guide middle school girls

(NORFOLK, Virginia) May 31, 2017 — The first ever 7-City Bus Tour is about to get on the road. Norfolk, Virginia-based nonprofit Envision Lead Grow’s traveling summer camp program is focused on serving middle schools girls nationwide to build their future through entrepreneurship.

Traveling by bus, the Envision Lead Grow team will conduct its first camp in Memphis, Tennessee. Over the course of the summer, the bus will make stops in Greensboro, North Carolina, Atlanta, Georgia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Baltimore, Maryland, Richmond, Virginia, ending with the grand finale in Norfolk, Virginia. In each city, the Envision Lead Grow team will share its interactive entrepreneurship curriculum to middle school girls in underserved communities.

Envision Lead Grow has partnered with local universities, local businesses and local female professionals in each city to create a ring of support for the young women.

“It has long been a dream of mine to inspire young women to achieve more. The mission and vision of Envision Lead Grow is to break the cycle of poverty for 1,000 girls in underserved communities in the U.S. each year. With the launch of this program, we are thrilled to be able to make inroads to reach that goal,” said Angela D. Reddix, the creator of Envision Lead Grow.

The camps in each city are made up of week-long sessions. It is a 40-hour entrepreneurship immersion program from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will be offered 100% free to camp participants with snacks and lunch included.

The girls will spend the week learning key skills to think in an entrepreneurial mindset, and will work on creating a “Passion Pitch” around their business ideas. All of this will culminate in a pitch competition, where one girl will receive $500 seed money for her venture.

The program doesn’t end after the week is over. Each girl will also be assigned a female mentor within the community to help her continue to develop her business idea after camp is over. The girls will also be included in an Envision Lead Grow online community and have access to online seminars and newsletters.

This summer, counselors with the ELG team will make stops in 7 different cities across the United States. They will share the fast-paced, fun-filled curriculum, “The 8 Seeds to Success in Business,” during a week-long summer camp in each city.

After the camp wraps up and the bus leaves, the middle school girls who attended the camp will continue to get support through hand-picked mentors in their city, online training with the ELG team and web-based discussions.

Angela D. Reddix is the President & CEO of ARDX, a multi-million dollar healthcare management and technology consulting company based in Norfolk. She created the Envision Lead Grow movement in 2016.
