Sadie Nash Leadership Project (SNLP), is a successful educational and leadership program for high school aged young women and gender expansive youth in New York City. We believe that every young woman and gender-expansive youth is a leader, and we offer free programs to further develop that leadership. SNLP is focused on the intellectual and personal development of young women/gender-expansive youth , and our programming also provides greatly needed networking opportunities, boosts college applications and provides youth with a safe, enriching, and creative experience to explore their identity and power.
During our Summer Institute, we bring together dynamic young leaders like YOU to share ideas, reflect on experiences, meet amazing role models, and to help transform your community through direct action. During the summer you and your peers will take classes, meet women involved in different forms of leadership, take workshops on issues that are important to you, and explore your own and others’ leadership.
