This collaborative, virtual series inspires the next generation of female leaders and brings professional women from a variety of career stages and backgrounds and high school girls across NJ together to share advice, learn new skills, and set goals for the future. Volunteer mentors inspire and empower students with career advice and coach them through virtual activities that build confidence and leadership skills. Volunteers and students can register for any of the hour long sessions.

Thanks to our generous sponsors (shown below), JA's Women's Future Leadership Academy is free and open to all NJ students grades 8-12.

Engaging, 60-minute sessions begin with featured speakers or career panels, followed by interactive small group mentoring led by volunteers that encourage all participants to learn, get involved and network. Topics are designed to give students the confidence and skills they need to achieve their goals and inspire them to reach their full potential.

Some sample topics include:
- Effective Decision Making
- Time Management Strategies
- Executive Career Panels
- Build your Brand
- and more!

For students unable to join on Wednesdays 5-6pm, all sessions are recorded and uploaded to our YouTube library, which are available on-demand.
