We had the pleasure of partnering with the BOLD Academy to bring a leadership and team building activity to the participants! The Black + Brown Opportunity, Leadership & Development Academy is a free week-long experience for girls ages 12-17. The academy is made up of numerous enrichment opportunities for the participants.
We wanted to engage the girls in a hands-on afternoon activity that had them work as a team to accomplish a goal, unknowing to them (at first) they were developing their leadership skills. At the end we highlighted different characteristics of leaders and how to achieve one’s goals.
The girls had wonderful questions for Dr. Rahhal about her career in the sciences and at Mizzou. They really enjoyed the activity and were very engaged throughout!
Alliance was happy to be a part of their BOLD experience and looks forward to taking part in the upcoming years!
