(NORFOLK, Virginia) March 5, 2017 — The Envision Lead Grow team is so thrilled to announce a partnership with the North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center (NCEC) at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG).
Dates for this camp will be June 19-23, 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.
Established in 2009, the NCEC at UNCG currently spearheads over 25 initiatives focused on cultivating an entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Triad region. The NCEC’s primary focus is getting students and other early stage entrepreneurs involved in the local entrepreneurial ecosystem as well as helping local startups leverage UNCG resources.
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.
