For the seventh straight year, the At the Well Young Women’s Leadership Academy (ATW) will offer its two week summer enrichment program for minority girls in the tenth or eleventh grades of high school. Each year, ATW improves the leadership skills of students from across the country on the campus of Princeton University in Princeton, NJ. ATW is scheduled for July 23–August 4, 2017. A Weekend Intensive is a mini three-day session for ninth graders to be held August 4-6, 2017.
The Academy focuses on academic, social, and career components through leadership development projects, interactive group sessions, critical reading and essay courses, field trips, and a financial aid/scholarship boot camp. Dynamic speakers from the corporate, non-profit, entrepreneurial, medical, legal, and entertainment fields offer workshops. The Academy prides itself on offering a safe space for minority students to share their experiences in a nurturing and healing atmosphere.
The Academy provides on-campus housing at Princeton University. Admission is competitive and teens must possess a 3.0 G.P.A, and submit an essay and recommendations.
