The WeLEAD program was started in 2014 as a means to help immigrant and refugee women navigate post-secondary education and to prepare them to be economically and financially self-sufficient. It is the sister program to Girls Getting Ahead in Leadership (GGAL), whose program focus is on academic support and leadership training for 6th-12th grade girls.
WeLEAD is a free program for immigrant and refugee women who are enrolled or plan to be enrolled in post-secondary education. If you are interested in receiving support from WeLEAD, please contact See Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
