Members of the Boys & Girls Club of Mount Vernon are learning strength and empowerment, one day at a time.
Teens are taking part in a special virtual program that allows them to interact with national leaders.
The program focuses on women of color, their contributions and lessons of empowerment for young girls.
Seniya Doyley, 12, says the lessons she's learned will last a lifetime. "Together as a nation, especially women, we all need to come together and fight for each other," she says.
The monthly program also aims to help girls realize their dreams and set goals, including achieving a higher education.
