Frequently Asked Summit Questions:

How are the girls selected for the summit?

Summit registration opens annually during the summer. Registration is open on a first come, first serve basis until we reach our capacity of 300 girls. Girls in grades 6-12 in Charlotte and the surrounding area with a commitment to strenghtening their leadership and advocacy skills can register to attend. Some girls are identified through principal, teacher, youth group and community recommendations, while others self-select through an interest in the program. Diversity of interest and background is embraced.


How are volunteers selected? Are they trained?

After registering for an orientation session, our Volunteer Coordintor will follow up with volunteers to provide training information and instructions on completing a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools background check. All volunteers must pass the CMS background check and must attend one orientation session to participate in the summit.
