|Women's Leadership Purpose:
Leading and Empowering women who are focused on investing in the youth of our community.
- Increase awareness of WLI through community impact and participation.
- Provide women of all ages, backgrounds and career paths with an opportunity to serve using their time, talent or treasures in a way that meets their philanthropic needs.
- Positively impact educational outcomes of Manatee County students with a focus on Early Childhood Education.
WLI is focused on the educational needs of the children in Manatee County. WLI will serve as the lead in volunteer recruitment and retention for the ReadingPals early literacy initiative. Our members will not only volunteer as reading mentors, but will actively seek additional volunteers to join ReadingPals. Throughout the year, WLI will continue to work with the Let's B Safe program and Holiday with a Heart event to provide children throughout Manatee County the opportunity to not only read but also enjoy the art of learning.
