Pulaski County Youth Services will host the Vision 2025 Women’s Power Breakfast Saturday, April 16, 2016. This annual fundraising event will launch the 2016 inaugural class of the Vision 2025 Leadership Institute.
The Vision 2025 Leadership Institute is the first program of its kind in the Central Arkansas area. Pulaski County Youth Services will introduce 33 girls between 9th-12th grades with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may have not yet been given the chance to truly be empowered as leaders. This program was created to provide a year-long training that focuses on empowerment, leadership development, mentoring, entrepreneurship, community services, and academic advising, thus allowing young women to complete high school and further their education at the post-secondary level.
Several women have been chosen to be honored during this event who are outstanding leaders, excellent role models, and who serve and empower other women to live and serve to their fullest potentials.
The Honorable Joyce Elliott, Senate District 31, will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Other honorees will include:
- Georgia Mjartan, Executive Director of Our House
- Tjuana Byrd, attorney at the Law Office of Tjuana Byrd
- Linda Leopoulos, Co-Founder of the Thea Foundation
“I am very passionate about developing a stronger female leadership base for Arkansas,” said Jamie Scott, Director of Pulaski County Youth Services. “When you empower a woman, you change a community, and we are committed to accomplishing that at an early age at Pulaski County Youth Services.”
The event will take place at the Little Rock Club, located at 400 West Capitol Avenue #1601, Little Rock, AR, 72201. Doors open at 8:
30 a.m. and breakfast will be served at 9:00 am. Entertainment will be provided by Rodney Block. Tickets are on sale for $40 each.
