Emerging Young Leaders (EYL)


January 15, 2013

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, Zeta Chi Omega Chapter is seeking your assistance in identifying young women to participate in one of our program initiatives, Emerging Young Leaders (EYL). This program is designed to foster leadership development, civic engagement, enhanced academic preparation, and character development in middle school-aged girls in grades 6 through 8. The goal of the program is to impact 10,000 girls nationwide and to enable these girls to become leaders within and outside of their communities.

Zeta Chi Omega’s EYL program includes girls from both the City of Alexandria and Arlington County and will create an enriching experience that will carry on for many years to come. Participants engage in a variety of activities consisting of leadership and personal development workshops, community service projects, and educational and cultural outings to museums and other venues.

We need your assistance in spreading the word to girls who reside or attend school in either the City of Alexandria or Arlington County. Applications for the program are available to girls that would be interested in or who would benefit from the program. For a copy of the application, please contact Caroline Howard at caroline83eyl@gmail.com or Shani Provost at shanipr@gmail.com. All application materials should be completed and returned to the following address on or before September 15, 2013:

Thank you for your assistance.
