Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande, R-Monmouth, is accepting applications for the Fourth Young Women’s Leadership Institute — a program that mentors and guides young women to be leaders.
“Everyone in public life has an obligation to help the next generation take control of their own future in an effort to make themselves and our society a better place.” – Asw. Caroline Casagrande
The nonpartisan program, which runs through next spring, is open to 10 high school junior girls in the 11th Legislative District. They will be mentored by a female leader and develop a community service project.
“This program is a great way to prepare young women in New Jersey to be tomorrow’s leaders,” said Casagrande. “Everyone in public life has an obligation to help the next generation take control of their own future in an effort to make themselves and our society a better place.”
Applications must be submitted by May 2 and include an essay of less than 1,000 words about the topic “What Would I Like to Accomplish as a Future Leader?” two letters of recommendation and a list of extracurricular activities.
Applications should be sent to Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande, 35 W. Main St., Freehold, NJ 07728 or emailed to AswCasagrande@njleg.org.
