NORFOLK, Virginia (January 3, 2017) — Envision Lead Grow is on the move.

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.

Reddix will share details of the ELG 7-City Bus Tour during a community breakfast at Old Dominion University’s Strome Entrepreneurial Center on Thursday, January 12, 2017. To attend the event, register here.

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.

The national Envision Lead Grow 7-City Bus Tour kicks off in 2017, making stops in 7 different cities across the United States. The ELG team will share its fast-paced, fun-filled curriculum, “The 8 Seeds to Success in Business,” during a week-long summer camp in each city.

Once the bus leaves, the girls will continue to get support through hand-picked mentors in their city, online training with the ELG team and web-based discussions.

During the January 12 community breakfast, Reddix will discuss:

*How community leaders will be able to support the Envision Lead Grow mission
*How student volunteers can learn and serve other girls in their community
*How business leaders will be able to support the mission through the “Get on the Bus” campaign

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.
