(NORFOLK, Virginia) March 3, 2017 — We are thrilled to be able to introduce ELG summer camp participants to Spark Baltimore & The Cordish Companies.
Dates for the camp at Spark Baltimore will be July 10-14, 2017.
Envision Lead Grow, the Norfolk-based nonprofit created by business owner Angela D. Reddix, will be traveling to 7 cities by bus during the summer of 2017. The theme for the summer: 1 program. 7 cities in 2017. 1,000 new GIRL BOSSES.
Envision Lead Grow’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty for 1,000 girls in underserved communities in the U.S. each year. The ELG team is committed to helping them build their futures through entrepreneurship…one girl at a time.
Spark Baltimore is Baltimore’s most collaborative coworking space, featuring private offices and shared workspace for the startup ecosystem. Spark is an inspiring work environment, designed specifically with creators in mind and tailored to provide entrepreneurs not just what they want, but what they need. Spark is a catalyst for advancing entrepreneurship and technical innovation through creative space, networking, and community members. Spark aims to provide entrepreneurs, creatives and innovators with the community and space, allowing them to ignite ideas that transform into successful companies and organizations.
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.
