Notes from the nonprofit

The mission of the Alice Paul Institute is to honor the legacy of Alice Paul's work for gender equality through education and leadership development. Paulsdale, Paul's birthplace in Mount Laurel, NJ, is a National Historic Landmark and serves as a center for celebrating women's history and leadership.  API school programs reach more than 1,000 K-12 students with lessons on women's history, civics and character education. Onsite and virtual leadership development programs serve middle and high-school aged girls from diverse communities in the greater Philadelphia region and beyond in summer institutes and year round programs that teach the next generation the skills they need to take leadership roles in their schools and communities. The enduring message in all our work is that one person can make a difference. In the leadership programs, girls learn that each of them is that one person.

ERA Education

The mission of the Alice Paul Institute is to honor the legacy of Alice Paul’s work for gender equality through education and leadership development. API realizes this goal by being an advocate for the Equal Rights Amendment, which Alice Paul wrote in 1923 and campaigned for until her passing in 1977.

The Alice Paul Institute is a key resource for educational materials on the Equal Rights Amendment as the proprietor of www.equalrightsamendment.org. The website includes the the history of the ERA, a blog on contemporary developments, and a downloadable toolkit for education and advocacy. This website is managed and updated with the support of a dedicated staff person who serves as a touchpoint on all things ERA.

Adults

Several of API's programs focus on developing the next generations of Alice Pauls, young female-identifying leaders who want to change the world. In the Lead-A-Way program, junior high students learn about the personal building blocks of leadership and success. Teen girls learn how to stand out as leaders just like the female role models they explore throughout the program. They practice positive communication skills, collaborative teamwork, and integrity in activities and team projects. This program emphasizes using your inherent leadership traits to affect positive change in your life and community.

The Alice Paul Professional Leadership Institute (APPLI) is an interactive summer camp that helps teen girls identify and develop the skills that lead to academic and professional success. They:
- Join women who are leaders in their fields for discussions about careers in law, medicine, engineering, and more.
- Learn how to build a compelling resume, how to find and apply for internships, personal finance strategies to start as a teenager, and the fine points of professional etiquette.
- Gain a deeper understanding of how to find and finance the right college education.
- Practice networking in personal mentorship sessions with a wide variety of professional women.
APPLI teaches young women skills and strategies to hone their potential, so they can walk confidently into their future.

The Girls Leadership Council runs the length of the school year, with monthly meetings for high-school-aged members. At the meetings, girls learn about issues affecting women in the US and around the world, and how to be effective advocates and allies as they work towards awareness and positive social change. They practice public speaking and networking skills, work with professional female mentors, and attend exciting events like the International Day of the Girl at the UN and the National Young Feminist Leadership Conference.
