Montgomery County Female Leadership Academy

The Montgomery County Female Leadership Academy is a mentorship program for young women between the ages of 14-16. Each participant will be matched with a mentor who is a leader in the community. Over the course of one year, our mentors and mentees will take part in group activities that include visits to local attractions, cultural event, games, obstacle courses, and more.

(Please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working to make every activity as safe as possible.)

Through each activity and one-on-one contact with their mentor, these young women will develop the soft skills, leadership, and character to be successful for the rest of their lives.

“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.”
— Oprah Winfrey
