(NORFOLK, Virginia) April 6, 2017 — The Envision Lead Grow team is so thrilled to announce a partnership with Virginia Commonwealth University’s da Vinci Center in Richmond.
Dates for this camp will be July 24-28, 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.
The VCU da Vinci Center is a collaboration of VCU’s School of the Arts, Business, Engineering and College of Humanities and Sciences. Its purpose is to advance innovation and entrepreneurship through cross-disciplinary collaboration.
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.
