Don't have time for a full internship? Looking for a mentorship to fill your high school requirement? We'd love to have you!

Maddie and Clara recently finished their 1-week mentorship weeks with WCI, and we could not be more impressed by them! Clara designed a GALS program for her high school, and Maddie designed a women's empowerment program for Egypt. In one week, the girls learned how to research an issue, identify the problems and create solutions to those issues. Through program proposal writing, grant research and writing, budget creation and designing marketing materials, the girls learned the beginning-to-end process of creating a WCI program.
