While droves of college and high-school students headed to the warmer areas of the country during their Spring Break, 46 young women were in NYC for a one-of-a-kind experience.

As a part of L’Oreal’s multi-year partnership with One Hundred Black Women, the ladies were hosted for the annual Role Model Program that teaches practical workplace and professional skills from women in the careers they’re interested in.

“The Role Model Program is the Coalition’s signature program, which has been very successful since its inception in 1979,” said Avalyn Simon, the President of the New York Coalition of One Hundred Black Women. “Our partnership with L’Oréal USA has served to strengthen and expand this program and is an excellent example of the synergy created by the collaboration of a major corporation and a non-profit volunteer organization.”

During their week the girls participated in intensive workshops, shadowed their mentors and attended cultural presentations. Style & Beauty Doctor and StyleBlazer contributor, Danielle Gray even hosted a presentation on “Dressing Your Way to Success.”

Aside from the information-filled week, three lucky young ladies received scholarships.
