PROGRAMMING & INITIATIVES
FPF is committed to providing relevant programming and initiatives that effect positive change, create lasting results, and generate the greatest return on investment in the lives of our network of women and girls, our partners, and the communities of Alabama. FPF has organized community outreach as follows:
A Will 2 Win Institute
A Will 2 Win Institute, a nine-month leadership training, and development program for middle and high school girls held in Birmingham, Alabama from September to May. This program is designed to address economic justice by empowering girls through intentional mentoring, career planning, networking, shadowing, and sponsoring. Participants will experience relevant workshops, panel discussions, networking events, guest lectures, retreats and empowerment sessions led by exceptional leaders, innovators, creatives and change agents.
Program History: In 2014, FPF partnered with Faith Chapel Christian Center in Birmingham, Alabama to pilot A Will 2 Win Institute, our leadership training, and development program in its first phase; in the same year until 2015, FPF facilitated A Will 2 Win Institute workshops for Birmingham Cultural Alliance Partnership through a partnership with Dream Girls Academy: two Birmingham, Alabama schools that directly benefited were Bertram A. Hudson K-8 School and Green Acres Middle School.
