Virtual Tuesday Programs: Changing Narratives
Guest Speaker: Neda Renee
With over 20 years of experience providing self-discovery and personal development coaching, Neda Renee and her team have their eyes set on a resource center for Black girls. Over the past 13 years, the organization she founded, Project DIVA (www.projectdiva.org), has delivered relevant programming, emotionally stabilizing skillsets and a space to be holistically themselves.
Focusing around academic, social, emotional, career, financial, and wellness behaviors, her organization has sustained a less than one-percent teen pregnancy rate, 100 percent school year completion rate and a 99 percent graduation rate during a time when public schools in Minnesota are failing them.
