This is a GREAT opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the program as well as receive information about the program.
The Mary Anne Shadd Cary and Margaret Rose Henry Civic Engagement Program is a specialized leadership development & women’s empowerment program targeting adult women, ages 18 & up residing in New Castle, Kent and Sussex Counties.
The purpose of the Shadd Cary/Henry Civic Engagement project is to increase women’s awareness of and participation on local, state and federal governing bodies in establishing law and policy that affect the economic, educational, social and civic lives of women and girls.
A secondary objective is to formulate a network of women that cross geographic and socio-economic boundaries and borders limiting their participation to silos or not at all due to lack of access to existing networks.
The project is designed to measurably increase the civic engagement of participants through awareness of and improved access to training and leadership development. While there is an emphasis on the engagement of black women, all interested women ages 18 and older will be encouraged to enroll.
