Teen Leadership Empowerment Academy (Girls)

The Teen Leadership Empowerment Academy is designed primarily for 9th grade teen girls and their parents through high school.  TLEA is committed to reaching low-income communities by providing opportunities for girls and their parents to participate at no cost.  The TLEA is a 16-week competency based curriculum that incorporates youth self-development and leadership as its driving philosophies.  Using trained facilitators from academia, corporate, nonprofit and government agencies is a key factor in obtaining a custom curriculum focused on helping teen girls to:


  • Build their self-esteem and self-confidence

  • Learn how to navigate teen adolescence in healthy ways

  • Learn, develop and practice the essential leadership skills for success

  • Lean how to set goals, and make sound decision to achieve those goals

  • Learn through shared experiences with peers and parents how to accept personal accountability

  • Learn concrete tools to be resilient, poised, courageous and confident
