Third Annual Scholarship and Awards Program


Afternoon Celebration

Join us for a casual, celebratory afternoon at the new and beautiful Salvation Army KROC Center honoring the promising young women of Women of the Dream (WOD) in the city of Camden, New Jersey. This special event on June 29, 2019 will highlight the achievements of current WOD scholarship recipients and previous recipients who have begun promising academic and professional career journeys. Two WOD girls will M.C. the event, and the program will include a youth keynote speaker, presentations by previous scholarship recipients, WOD participants, games, and entertainment

Come network with our neighborhood of committed parents, school officials, community leaders and business professionals that reflect a community of support for our emerging female leaders. Learn about WOD’s programs and partnerships that support our mission to provide positive opportunities for girls in Camden, NJ. Or just come to meet, greet, network and have fun. We’ll do that too!
