(NORFOLK, Virginia) February, 14, 2017 — So fitting for Valentine’s Day, the ELG Team is excited to announce a partnership we know you will love.

The Norfolk location for the ELG 7-City Bus Tour is the Old Dominion University Strome Entrepreneurial Center.

Dates for this camp will be: July 31 – August 4, 2017.

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.

“ODU is proud to partner with Envision Lead Grow and Founder Angela Reddix on this visionary journey to reach and teach 1,000 middle school girls, including those in Hampton Roads, about innovation and entrepreneurship,” said Nancy Grden, Executive Director, ODU Strome Entrepreneurial Center. “Through the work in our Center and in my own career, I see how the ‘light turns on’ for those who first imagine and then practice leading and growing a new idea, group, or enterprise.”

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.

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.
