Entrepreneurial Academy for Girls ages 8 – 14 begins June 7th
Academy to train girls about entrepreneurship and being a CEO.
By: She Elevates
She Elevates exists solely to empower girls ages 8 – 14 to become leaders, future entrepreneurs and CEOs. It teaches girls to think beyond what they think they can be. The Founder and Executive Director of She Elevates is DeLores Pressley.
"It went back to my childhood," said Pressley, a former elementary school teacher who has also been in business for the last thirty years. "Although I was always confident and a leader, I didn't know much about entrepreneurship despite realizing I wanted to be one in 5th grade." Pressley had a dream of owning a business at a young age. Pressley realized that there are other girls out there who also have that dream. She states, "This Academy is a pipeline to help change the gender gap in business."
The Academy will be held at Stark State College on June 7, 14, 21, 28, 8:00am – 2:30pm and graduation is June 29, 10:00am – 1:00pm. Registration is $200.00. Full scholarships are available to the girls who need financial assistance. She Elevates also is seeking sponsors for the Academy.
