Thank you for expressing interest in the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. Delaware Chapter’s (NC100BW-DE) Mary Anne Shadd Cary/Senator Margaret Rose Henry Civic Engagement Program.
The Mary Anne Shadd Cary/Senator 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. It will consist of two cohorts with sessions over a several months.
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.
Deadline to apply is January 3, 2019 for Kent/Sussex County.
