Virtual Empower Leadership Academy | Bellisio Foods Partnership

January 18, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm CST

This is a private event for the daughters/nieces/granddaughters of the Bellisio Foods national workforce and partners including young girls from the Minneapolis and metro area Police Explorers, Police Athletic League, and daughters of military soldiers and police officers.

We’re excited to host this private Virtual Empower Leadership Academy in resilience for girls in 5th-12th grade!

This year has been a challenging one for all of us, but especially our children. Last March, their young lives came to a screeching halt. They had to quickly grasp and develop tools to combat isolation, manage stress and anxiety, learn how to grieve what they lost, and become resilient.

Empower recognizes that kids of all ages need a focus on resiliency during this current time. Throughout our program, we will make sure participants will be able to work on their personal resilience, growth mindset, adaptability and flexibility, and hope and grit.

Developing leadership, building confidence, and strengthening resilience require education and practice. Empower provides a safe, interactive environment to learn, grow, and develop. All will take place through interactive learning with worksheets, videos, and breakout rooms to chat with peers about what they are facing in today’s society.

During this academy, participants will become certified in the Resilience pillar of Empower@Home. Certificates will be emailed out at the conclusion of the program.
