Shades of Leadership
Annual fundraiser for YWCA GirlsFirst

Wed, 15 Nov, 2017 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Time Zone: America/Los_Angeles
Local Time: Wed, 15 Nov, 2017 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join us to celebrate female-identified youth of color who are leading the way in our community at Shades of Leadership, an annual benefit for YWCA GirlsFirst.

YWCA GirlsFirst encourages leadership, instills confidence, develops skills, and provides opportunities to over 140 female-identified youth of color in Seattle and King County each year. This empowering program helps build social, emotional, and academic skills through community-building activities, STEAM-based education (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math), and professional summer internships. This intentional design holds up youth of color at an important crossroads, so they can succeed in high school and beyond.

Featuring a champagne reception, dinner by Tom Douglas Catering, presentation of the 2017 GirlsFirst Youth Award, and remarks from Keleghai (Kiki) Tatah Mentan from Red-Tailed Hawks Flying Club and Black Pilots of America.
