Sadie Nash Leadership Project
Created for and by girls from low-income households, the Sadie Nash Leadership Project is a unique educational leadership program which supports the intellectual and emotional development of girls at a critical stage in their lives.
Based on the guiding principle that leadership lies in service and activism, Sadie Nash brings together a diverse group of over 250 girls from over 50 public schools throughout New York City.
For the past eight years, Sadie Nash has coordinated an intensive six-week summer program, school year courses that focus on practical leadership skills, service-learning internships, and collective leadership projects that directly impact poor communities in Brooklyn and beyond.
To bridge the gap between high school graduation, college matriculation and college graduation, they also provide monthly workshops for young women who have completed the two year program.
Brooklyn Community Foundation supports programs like Sadie Nash as part of its commitment to programs that not only help people for today, but those that also provide opportunities for a stronger tomorrow.
