The Empowerment Circle Model serves as the heart of our mission, fostering growth, connection, and empowerment for young women of color. Through our five dynamic circles—STEM, Arts & Literacy, Identity & Mental Wellness, College & Career Readiness and Civic Engagement—we provide a holistic approach to personal and collective development. Each circle offers a space for exploration, skill-building, and sisterhood, ensuring that our members not only gain knowledge and skills but also develop the confidence to turn life's challenges into opportunities for growth and empowerment.
What Are Empowerment Circles?
Empowerment Circles are the pillars of the Lemonade Circle. Each of our events/workshop will fall into one of these categories that have been designed to provide our girls with a platform to explore their passions, gain new skills, and foster meaningful connections. With each circle carrying a unique focus, our members can immerse themselves in topics that align with their ambitions and dreams. Our four core Empowerment Circles encompass:
S.T.E.M. Circle: Explore the wonders of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Engage in hands-on learning, solving challenges, and expanding horizons in an empowering environment.
Arts & Literacy Circle: Immerse in diverse stories and art by women of color. Elevate cultural understanding, express yourself, and empower voices through creative exploration.
Identity & Wellness Circle: Erase stigma, educate on well-being, and expand mind-body connections for resilience. Embrace a supportive community and foster mental wellness.
College & Career Readiness Circle: Equip for success. Engage in workshops, explore career paths, and gain essential digital and financial literacy skills through empowering experiences and mentorship.
Civic Engagement Circle: Engage in meaningful change by making a positive difference in your community. Envision a better world, and embrace the chance to leave a lasting impact.
The Power of Connection Empowerment Circles are not just about individual growth; they're about fostering a supportive sisterhood where girls can share experiences, learn from one another, and collaborate on inspiring projects. Our circle sessions are carefully curated to provide a safe space for open dialogue, encouraging girls to voice their thoughts, dreams, and concerns, all while building lasting friendships.
