WHO WE ARE
THE YOUNG ELITES LEAD TEAM
LIVE EXCELLENCE ACHIEVE DREAMS
These are the faces of leadership
Our LEAD Team is passionate about creating opportunities for our girls to be great.
These amazing ones lead by example and make our entire community stronger.
To provide expert programming for high school girls to inspire their intellectual, physical, and social growth while preparing them for a lifestyle of leadership.
To equalize education and provide primary preventative health care for young women.
Young Elites brings the best of the community together to support high school girls and put young women in position to lead in every area of their lives.
From its first Leadership Summit in 2012, Young Elites has committed to providing corporate leadership training at the high school level. Challenging year-round and Leadership Summit sessions continually push girls in and out of their comfort zones to achieve intellectual, physical, and social growth.
Aside from its effectiveness in delivering on the promise to provide expert-led sessions hitting pressing, relevant, and important topics, Young Elites events bring amazing, like-minded girls together and starts friendships that have the foundation to last forever.
“If I had gone through Young Elites as a high school student, I would have been more confident going into college because I was a little nervous and unsure of myself as a woman. If I had this program, I would have been able to go into college leading right from the start.”Dakota Dukes, Presenter and former President of Davidson College Young Elites Student Organization
