What We DoThe Lemonade Circle strives to ensure that all of our young ladies are given opportunities to be able to identify and network with other women of color within the community. Our big focus is leadership development and civic engagement. We provide our girls with activities and events that allow them to #makeLEMONADE throughout the year. These experiences allow them to learn both the personal and professional skills needed to become advocates for change on their campuses and in their communities. Our girls are also given several opportunities to demonstrate their civic engagement by serving as youth representatives on local, state, and national committees and nonprofit organizations that are involved in ensuring that equity and equality is accessible for all individuals regardless of race, gender, religion, or political beliefs.
Together we unite, as a circle, and work as a team to make LEMONADE out of the lemons that may life bring them--together.
