Nationwide — Black excellence and effective leadership are essential for a thriving African-American community to survive any world crisis. Jacqueline Glass-Campbell, CEO of At the Well Conferences, Inc. (ATW), celebrates molding the masterminds of tomorrow by introducing At the Well Young Women’s Leadership Academy’s Online Weekend Intensive Program.
Per the COVID-19 social distancing and stay-at-home guidelines set forth by the state of New Jersey, along with the organization’s concern for the well-being of students and families, the original program formerly held at Princeton University was canceled. Now, students from across the country have the opportunity to receive this prestigious online education that is easily accessible and affordable. Options include two 3-day online summer program intensives held Jul 23-25, 2021, and July 30 to August 1, 2021, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. These programs are being offered at a currently discounted rate of $349. Applications are available on the ATW website at AtTheWellConferences.org. There is no application fee.
