Directors of Girls Programming, Elizabeth Ige and Sharena Soutar, as well as Director of Research, Dr. LeConte Dill, will be presenting at this year’s NNHVIP Conference about young women of color and violence. Take a preview of one of KAVI’s girl participants and her testimony about KAVI:
This week KAVI’s Queens program took a different take on Take Your Daughter to work day. Instead, KAVI volunteers and facilitators figured out what interested our Queens most and matched them up with professionals in the field, letting them shadow their daily activities in their respective jobs. Two girls shadowed Founding Executive Director, Dr. Gore, in the emergency room. Others participated in dance rehearsals at the acclaimed Alvin Ailey School, learned about the justice system at a law office, and saw behind the camera in a photography studio.
