The Debutante Cotillion will be comprised of a maximum of 25 young women of color enrolled in grades 9-12 who demonstrate exemplary academic achievement, possess exceptional character and have outstanding involvement in extra-curricular activities and community service.
The overall Program will consist of 6 months of monthly programming modules, with presentations and activities focused on health and wellness, education, leadership development, cultural arts, and community service.
