Program 1

API pursues a dual mission through the Alice Paul Leadership Program and Women?s Heritage Programs. The latter include: tours of Paulsdale, school presentations and field trips, lectures on Alice Paul and the women?s rights movement, the New Jersey Women?s History Website and educational events such as book signings and historical presentations for the general public, community groups and children. In the last three years, our heritage programs have served a local and national audience of more than 10,000 school children, educators, community organizations, the general public and heritage tourists. The Alice Paul Leadership Program (APLP) introduces adolescent girls to women leaders and to the leadership skills that they need to develop in order to become leaders themselves. Since 1995 hundreds of girls have participated in APLP workshops and seminars in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Ocean and Mercer Counties. Three unique principles govern all Alice Paul Leadership Program activities. Components of the Alice Paul Leadership Program include: ? Girls Leadership Summer Camp: a 10-day morning camp for adolescent girls that includes leadership training, role model leaders, field trips, team activities, music and art, physical skills and games. ? Lead-A-Way: a series of ten after-school workshops, focusing on women leaders and leadership skills, for up to 25 eighth-grade girls in one school. ? Leadership: Share Your Voice: a one-day workshop which introduces 50 eighth-grade girls to the continuum of successful women leaders in the past and the present and familiarizes them with some of the skills they need to become leaders of the future. ? Looking at Careers: Where Do I Go from Here?: an after-school workshop for tenth-grade girls and boys which features a panel of women leaders from various professions and offers opportunities for mentoring and on-the-job exposure to their professions. ? Girls? Advisory Council: ten girls (current members? ages 12-16), who support API events, review and evaluate program developments, represent API at area girls? meetings, and plan women?s history events for the community and in schools. ? G.O.L.D. (Girls Overnight Leadership Development): an overnight at Paulsdale for girls 8 and older to explore Alice Paul?s life and home and to focus on teamwork as an important component of leadership. ? Next Steps: Girls & the College Adventure: a one-day workshop for up to 50 senior high girls that connects them with current college women to learn about the college search and application process
