Sadie Nash Leadership Project was founded in 2001 to promote leadership and activism among young women. The program is designed to strengthen, empower, and equip young women as agents for change in their lives and in the world. By increasing the participation of women in social, political, and economic decision-making, SNLP seeks to question and redefine the nature of leadership and to promote perspectives and practices that are cooperative, accountable, ethical, and effective.
Throughout the program, the specific goals for the young women are:
• To increase self-esteem
• To envision themselves as leaders now and in the future
• To understand and seek the right to equality
• To empower their decision-making ability
• To seek and value community action and involvement
