First Ladies of Poverty Foundation Opens Up Its Talent and Career Development Membership Program for Independence Day
by Personal, Professional and Leadership Development mentor, Shatoyia Jones
#1 Talent and Career Development x Enrichment Program
for People of Color [Youth & Adults]
An award-winning self development program offering an academy (classes and enrichment), mentor-ship and membership support to hard-working and talented people [adults and youth] of color seeking a personal blueprint to attain personal, professional and financial success while facing and overcoming systemic barriers of oppression
Many "success" and "career development" programs today do not take into account the unique obstacles people of color face every single day on their journey to success. Despite "pulling themselves up by their bootstraps," adults and youth of color alike face systemic barriers on their journey to success and promotions in leadership, no matter how qualified, credible or talented they may be.
We envision a world where not only do people of color fight against systemic oppression, but they are provided with the supportive community, educational resources, professional training and individual mentor-ship to do so. The end result we seek when working with communities of color is to be able to provide accessibility to the resources for people [adults and youth] of color to overcome systemic barriers to attain success (financial stability and a higher quality of life).
As an organization, we aim to support allies on their ally-ship journey, as well as to be an industry leader for poverty alleviation and education reform through the research of the historical significance and lasting effects of the experiences of people of color in America.
