After six full and fulfilling years hosting programming in its hometown of Irvington, NY, the Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute is expanding to run youth leadership programs across the country.
"What makes us unique is our founding story - we're a relatively new organization, but are built on practices that have been tried and tested for over thirty years at EILEEN FISHER Inc.," says Program Director, Antoinette Klatzky. "Eileen's story - one of entrepreneurship, reflection and collaboration - is at the heart of what we do and we know that it's inspiring beyond our hometown community."
Through the 2016 year, EFLI will hold residential programs in the DC, NY and Seattle regions, allowing participants from across the country to come explore creativity, confidence, connection and community and discover their own leadership style. "EFLI is my home," says Youth Ambassador Board member, Sonali. "The community makes me feel like I am strong enough to conquer the world."
EFLI will continue to run programming throughout summer 2016 in the EILEEN FISHER Learning Lab in Irvington, NY. "We don't want to forget where we came from," says Klatzky. "This expansion is about building on what we've learned in Irvington and answering the call from young people all over the country." Over the last few years, EFLI has had participants join their Irvington, NY, programs from Michigan, California, Florida, and Canada, to name a few.
