1 program. 7 cities in 2017. 1,000 new GIRL BOSSES.
Envision Lead Grow‘s mission is to increase the rate of entrepreneurship and break the cycle of poverty for 1,000 middle school girls in underserved communities in the U.S. each year. We are committed to helping them build their future through entrepreneurship by creating a community to support their success.
The national Envision Lead Grow 7-City Bus Tour kicked off the Envision Lead Grow program in 2017, making stops in 7 different cities across the United States. The ELG team shared its fast-paced, fun-filled curriculum, “The 8 Seeds to Success in Business”, during a week-long summer camp in each city.
