Girls Leadership Program

The Women’s Foundation Girls Leadership Program was established in 1999 for the purpose of teaching area teen women all aspects of philanthropy including grant-making, fundraising, leadership, team-building, program evaluation, and budgeting. The Women’s Foundation Girls Leadership Program is now administered through a collaboration with Cottey College.

Any current high school freshman, sophomore, or junior in the Kansas City metropolitan area who is interested in developing leadership skills and learning about philanthropy is encouraged to apply. The program occurs year-round with monthly meetings that begin in September.
