The same camp that trained SuperGirl Marley Dias, founder of the #1000BlackGirlBooks campaign, is now accepting applicants. If you live in and around Essex County, New Jersey, you are eligible to apply for our SuperGirlsSociety (SGS) and our summer academy SuperCamp.
SGS is a family-based yearlong leadership development program for girls of African descent and their caregiving circle. This sisterhood and service group provides training in African and African-American history, public speaking, mental, sexual and physical health as well as workshop in West African drumming and dance.
SuperCamp is the intensive 4-week leadership training academy that prepares members for the yearlong program. If you are chosen to be a member of this community you are agreeing to support the mission of the GrassROOTS Community Foundation, work in collaboration with other caregivers and girls, and commit to creating a world where all girls grow up to be healthy women.
SuperGirls Society is an exclusive and intense experience for those who are willing to commit to civic change. We accept only 10 percent of all applicants. Our work is organized around the Kemetic principles of Maat.
This year we are accepting girls who are entering the 3rd-5th grade in Fall 2020.
