I Am A Queen's Girl Boss Academy is a seven-week program to teach girls ages 10-18 about entrepreneurship and financial empowerment.

Girls will have the chance to learn how to start a business, how to finance their company and save money, pitching your business with confidence. In addition, girls will have a chance to participate in a college prep session and learn from two entrepreneurs on content creation and fashion design. 

Registration is required and for all in-person events, strict COVID-19 guidelines will be followed.

On Nov. 20, program participants will have a chance to participate in a business pitching competition for a prize and receive coaching from female entrepreneurs.

We love you so much with your mask-on, hands santized and socially distanced.

All sessions are fully funded by the VELA Education Fund.
