The Alberta V. Scott Leadership Academy (AVS), an initiative of ABHW, is a mentorship program serving Black high school girls in the Greater Boston area. The mission of AVS is to facilitate the holistic development of successful young Black women by equipping them with the tools they need to succeed in college, the workplace, and the world at large. Fostering sisterhood between AVS scholars and their college-level mentors, the program strives to cultivate leadership skills and nurture individual creativity. It is our hope, that through candid, insightful discussion, we can create a community of empowered young Black women ready and willing to take on the world and support their peers in future endeavors.
This year, AVS meetings, held on Saturdays from 12:00-1:30PM EST, will be on Zoom. We will be hosting workshops about applying to and preparing for college, self-care and self-love as Black women, career paths outside of the traditional college route, and more. Additionally, some of our meetings will feature engaging and exciting Black women speakers!
