The annual three-day, two-night mentoring program pairs powerful women with teenage girls for a weekend to impact, empower and inspire their futures, The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation is kicking off applications to select this year’s class of 100 teenage girls from the metro Atlanta area and surrounding areas.
Created by philanthropist Marjorie Harvey, President of The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation, to spark change overcoming common pressures that young women are facing today, the third annual GWRTW will address social, emotional, educational and cultural needs to guide them through a weekend journey that will strengthen their mind, body and spirit.
Young women ages 13-18 who live in metro Atlanta and surrounding areas in a 50-mile radius can apply by mail July 16th – August 27th for the third annual GWRTW taking place September 28th – 30th in historic Stone Mountain, GA by downloading the application and addressing topics encompassing their personal dreams, long-term career goals, educational goals, and peer pressure, among other topics.
This encouraging, self-confidence filled program, which motivates young women in taking charge of their futures with visions of success, will also present a diverse cross-section of women who have made substantial transformations in their career fields, creating their own impact in entertainment, music, media and business. Bringing together a team of inspirational, powerful women, in the past two years Harvey has welcomed a diverse league of leaders including CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, Essence Magazine’s Mikki Taylor, The View’s Sherri Shepherd, five-time Olympian Teresa Edwards, and more. Sharing their insight and personal journeys with the young women, this year’s lineup of special speakers and guests will provide wisdom and experiences coupled with the challenges, advice and resources that impacted their road to success.
