The Minneapolis- St. Paul Chapter of The Links, Incorporated is  excited to present  ‘Linked 4 Leadership- An African American Leadership Experience!”

*** Application Submission Deadline is November 6, 2015***
The purpose of Linked for Leadership (“L4L”) is to provide innovative and engaging leadership development and college preparation curriculum, mentoring and exposure to young African American women who are high-performing high school juniors and seniors. To this end, we are now soliciting candidates who we believe will link to success in this program and whatever endeavors they wish to pursue.
The L4L curriculum has been designed to meet the unique needs and goals of African American young ladies who are priming themselves for success. The curriculum balances hot topics and critical leadership traits to form a well-rounded selection of courses and experiences. The program will kick-off in November and will consist of a series of learning retreats and field trips until the graduation event in May. From November to May, participants will engage in sessions related to the following areas:
  • Professional Etiquette
  • Communications & Personal Branding
  • Personal Finance
  • Tools for College Success
  • Relationships
  • Social Responsibility & Volunteerism
  • African American Culture
  • Strengths-Based Leadership
