Sadie Nash Leadership Project has been a big part in opening me up to the world. They were unbias toward our merit, race, and sexual orientation. In fact, in the two summers I've spent in the Sadie Nash Leadership Project, I've met the most diverse group of young women. The workshops the project provides includes workshops that promote finding our inner-self/self esteem, ranging from DJing classes to Art. We also meet with phenomenal speakers every single week.

Not only does Sadie Nash have a famous summer program, but they also have classes that are held sporadically/routinely in the weekends for other general women's empowerment purposes.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the classes/field trips I took, and the people I met.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make more branches to this organization all across the country.

I became a nasher when I was 17, years old and never regretted any moment apart of this organizations. They have taught me leadership skills: how to be proficient, how to work with others from other ethnic groups and it has taught me about the world beyond what I thought I already knew. The summer program was a great experience!! Implementing ideas we(the nashers) wanted to inform others about and most importantly how to help others.
I believe one of my best acquirements of being in Sadie Nash is knowing how to give to others, building courage for myself, learning how to respect others from different backgrounds and how to make a difference in society.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my academic goals, I am currently working towards a degree in Social Work and it was the informative sessions on different social issues that has given me a passion and drive to want contribute to societ, and to fight against social injustice.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to have summer programs or sessions for nashers who are in college and visiting for the summer. I believe this could be a way for networking and staying connected.

Sadie Nash Leadership Project was one of the most incredible experiences I could have had in my life. The summer I spent with the Nashers as a Dean in the 2010 Summer Institute was one of the most powerful and inspirational opportunities I could have been given. Sadie Nash works to empower women, but in truly unconventional ways. Teaching young women that they are experts on their lives was one of the most incredible lessons I could have taken away from the Summer Institute. In retrospect, objectively thinking of the impact Sadie Nash has on young women is something to be proud of. This organization inspires women to make choices, be knowledgeable about the world, and advocate for justice for all people. Nothing I have experienced has ever had this type of impact on my social awareness of how to liberate people in my own community. Praise to Sadie Nash for being an incredible organization, with hard working women, and even greater results.

The Great!

My own life/. Sadie Nash taught me that I am able to be a dynamic leader in my community and that I can advocate for equity for all people regardless of my age. This organization allowed me to showcase my abilities as a teacher and mentor. It helped me learn about non-traditional and queer subjects, allowing me to have difficult conversations with people about issues that plague our nation. Returning to college in the fall after the institute, I was readily prepared to continue my advocacy work on campus.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Allow for more women to take part in the incredible experience the summer institute offers. With limited staff and resources, many girls are not able to participate in the program.

Sadie Nash is more than a non-profit organization for young women, it is a movement that is nourishing the women who will be leaders in all areas of society. I know this for a fact because in the 9 weeks I worked with them in Newark, NJ I learned more about what it means to be a leader than in any other job or school activity I had in college. It does an impeccable job of balancing theory with practicality. The young women were told they had value for their first time in their lives that was outside of academic and I think that is what makes this program successful.
If I could I would do it all over again.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I learned skills in creating a safe space where constructive dialogue is held as well as a follow up with individuals. Learned that projects on social justice is about the journey as much as the destination. Effective peer counseling and workshop faciliating skills.

I would give a program assistant for the Newark Program.

I LOVE Sadie Nash Leadership Project (SNLP). I have had the opportunity to teach young women in their Brooklyn and Newark Summer Institutes and have been impressed by the consistency of their mission in all aspects of their work. They believe that young women are leaders and this belief pervades all of their activities. The Summer Institutes offer AMAZING coursework - like Theater of the Oppressed and the Poetry of Women Prisoners. Over a six-week period, I have borne witness to the transformation of young women - specifically, in terms of how they connect with social justice work and how they view themselves.

In addition, I love that SNLP is hyper-organized. I sometimes have experienced youth organizations be a little sloppy in their bookkeeping or administration. I find that SNLP is always on top of it which makes them a pleasure to work with.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the transformation of young women in the Summer Institute over six weeks. The young women start talking about social justice issues and about higher aspirations for themselves. After teaching most sessions, I have left on a major high.

expand it! have more opportunities for more young women. I would also love a SNLP program for grown women. I feel that I (and many women I know) could greatly benefit from the amazing leadership and community-building activities that take place at SNLP

Sadie Nash delivers first-rate educational services to the young women in its constituency. The values they instill in individuals resonate with their families and communities. When I speak to young women who have been in the program I am always struck but their ability articulate their goals, and act on them. I am also impressed by their commitment to service and leadership.
On an institutional level the leadership of SNLP has built a tensile, achievement oriented organization, with a culture of honest self-assessment , and creative problem solving.

Providing high level leadership training for young women to become
empowered in their home communities is a most basic idea that is not addressed often enough. Sadie Nash Leadership Project has had the
foresight to put together a program that supports this obvious approach.
High
quality leaders within the organization who choose other high quality and passionate young women who are both the trainers and the
trainees. Young women must be guided in understanding how to recognize and develop their own self- worth and I think that mentoring
for leadership is the smartest route to take and Sadie Nash is taking it
far!!

The Great!

My faith in the power, innovation, and beauty of feminist community-building can be fully credited to the Sadie Nash Leadership Project (SNLP). The insightful leadership of the staff and board, the heart and humility of the teachers, plus the fierce brilliance of the students make SNLP a unique community for holistic empowerment.

During the summer Leadership Institute, for example, students engage in interactive classes that creatively synthesize knowledge(s), building collaborative and activist leadership skills, learning new channels of self-expression and communication etc. In addition, students meet social, political, intellectual and spiritual leaders on a weekly to discuss the meaning of positive change and personal growth.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

SNLP allowed me to develop confidence in my personal leadership and commitment to working for celebratory social change. In the process of growing more authentically myself, I built the strongest friendships I have ever had with other members of SNLP. Every person I know who is a part of the SNLP community is grateful that this non-profit exists -- and that SNLP is doing the work of nurturing holistic empowerment.

What I learned from SNLP is incredibly value, and has helped me understand my strengths as an immigrant woman of color. As a former ELLA fellow, a program dedicated to give young women a chance to lead a social justice project in communities they identify with, I started my project at one of the worst times in my life-- fresh out of college, away from home, etc. Through mentorship of the coordinators, as well as my peers, I came to understand the support system I had, and learned a great deal about grassroots organizing. To this day, I thank SNLP for the incredible year they gave me, and helped me realize the confidence within me.

The Great!

As a young non-profit professional today advocating for rights in communities of color and low-income communities, I always keep in mind the useful skills I learned from organizing. I became a much better listener as a result, which helps me navigate the communities I serve.

I would hope that more resources can be devoted to SNLP.
