Young Women's Leadership Academy

In 1993, when there was a lack of female leadership nationwide, Infinity was founded by a woman dedicated to greatness. Dr. Margaret Castillo founded Infinity with a vision of educating children and their families through engaging and meaningful interactions.

Over the past 28 years Dr. Castillo has mentored young educators and shared the importance of adding value to the people you work with. This year we are proud to announce the birth of the Infinity Young Women’s Leadership Academy.   This academy will be a supportive group for young women who want to develop their leadership skills, work as part of a group organized to improve community lives and use the skills they develop to become NYC Community Leaders.  Individuals accepted into this academy will commit to a two year program. 

Application Criteria

  • You must be female.

  • You must be 15 - 21 years old.

  • You must live in NYC.

  • You must commit to the two year program.

  • You must be willing to commit to the application process. 


Each month the group will focus on a leadership skill. They will be required to complete research on the skill and with the group, they will conduct a service project which will award them a Leadership Pin. This program is completely free to the leadership candidate. At the end of the two years, the Leadership Candidates will receive an award certifying them as an Infinity Young Woman Leader, confirming they have developed skills and confidence to be a community leader and the opportunity to win $5,000.00 for a community leadership project conducted by the graduate. 

Applications for 2023 will be released in July with more information.
