Learning and Growing from the Teachings of Young Women of Color

As a recipient of the Rackham Public Scholarship Grant, I have worked collaboratively with Sadie Nash Leadership Project’s (SNLP) ELLA Fellows over the past seven months. There are 14 fellows, high school and college-aged women of color, who exemplify leadership skills and qualities. Through training workshops facilitated by SNLP staff and myself, these young women are gaining and refining their facilitation, evaluation, and community engaged research design skills. The Fellows are working to activate, support, and mobilize their communities on a variety of relevant social justice issues. Working on this project has been critical to my development as a community-engaged scholar, and has expanded and reaffirmed two beliefs that I have carried with me into graduate school.
