I am so excited to be walking in the 5th Annual Sojourner Truth Walk: Celebrating Girls' & Women’s Leadership! Money raised for this walk will support Camp Sojourner, a nonprofit leadership program for Philadelphia girls ages 8-17, which offers year-round leadership development including mentoring, service projects, creative arts, nature hikes, college tours, and a one-week overnight camp (girlsleadershipcamp.org
Camp Sojourner, Girls’ Leadership Camp helps Philadelphia girls, regardless of their economic background, have the opportunity to take charge of their own lives and be agents of positive change in their communities. All programs are offered on a sliding scale, with significant scholarships.
Several of my housemates have been counsellors at camp, and I've appreciated what a beautiful community has built up around the camp. And the kids are amazing!
Please consider joining me for this event and walking in the streets of West Philadelphia to celebrate girls and women leaders. Or sponsor me, and help support Philly girls!
