A Leadership & Character Development Program
Each year, the Greenwood Cultural Center is proud to offer Women of Tomorrow, a program design to help disadvantaged women within the local community.
Women of Tomorrow is a leadership and character development program sponsored by the Greenwood Cultural Center.
The program is designed to:
• Positively impact the academic development and achievement of students
• Promote the development of healthy lifestyles
• Develop leadership skills, self-respect and positive characteristics
• Promote civic engagement and community service as servant leaders
• Improve self-esteem
Weekly meetings are held on Saturdays from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Greenwood Cultural Center. The program is offered for free.
Classes resume in January 2019. To enroll, please contact 918.596.1026.
The program is held in June from 8AM-5PM for children ages 5 - 12. The program explores the history of Black Wall Street and the pioneering African-American entrepreneurs that made it the most prosperous black-owned business district in the country during its time. The program teaches basic principles of entrepreneurship for kids such as creating a product, marketing and mentorship. Children spend the month creating items such as t-shirts, bracelets, bath bombs, etc. that they then market in a recreated Black Wall Street Marketplace at the Greenwood Cultural Center.
The fee is $175 for the month.
Lunch, supplies and field trips are included. Space is limited.
The CDF Freedom Schools model incorporates the totality of the Children's Defense Fund's mission by fostering environments that support children and young adults to excel and believe in their ability to make a difference in themselves and in their families, schools, communities, nation, and world. College age young adults are trained as servant leader interns to deliver the integrated reading curriculum (IRC) and adults are trained as site coordinators and project directors to provide supervision and administrative oversight.
The program is made possible with the support of Ruth K. Nelson, George Kaiser Family Foundation, the Anne & Henry Zarrow Foundation and the Maxine & Jack Zarrow Family Foundation.
