Join us at the 2024 Changemakers Soirée to support LEAD Girls.

You are a community changemaker and our girls need your support more than ever. Nearly 8 in 10 girls say the pressures of life are overwhelming. 4 in 10 girls feel depressed more than four days a week.

At LEAD Girls, we wake up each day to meet these challenges head-on, because we believe the future of girls is the future of all of us.

Our program has a powerful, evidence-based curriculum that changes girls’ lives for the better. After just one semester with LEAD Girls, 90% recognize their good qualities, 87% feel confident about their future, and 100% believe they can become entrepreneurs.

This year our Changemakers Soirée features the release of our annual impact report, presentations from LEAD girls, and The Leading the Way Awards recognizing a volunteer and LEAD Girls.

We are shaping future changemakers, but we can’t do it without you.

Join us in making a difference.

Tickets are on sale now! Online auction is now live!
