Comrades, a great opportunity for our girls!
Let’s start them young. This program also builds self-esteem…they do not need to be interested in politics to be chosen to attend!
COST: The program is entirely FREE of charge, and travel scholarships are available to sophomores, juniors and seniors! Running Start is accepting applications for their 2009 Young Woman’s Political Leadership Retreat. Please share with teachers and encourage any high school girls you know to apply!!!
WHAT: Running Start encourages high school girls from across the country to channel their leadership into politics. Participants will meet extraordinary women leaders of diverse backgrounds and earn the importance of having more women in political leadership and running for office. EVEN if the girls are not interested in politics, this is a great program way for them to build self-esteem, practice public speaking and learn to collaborate with other young women.
