The Oakland/Bay Area Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women invites you to learn about our signature program—Positive Steps.

The Positive Steps Program is a mentoring program for young ladies that focuses on personal growth and development, cultural enrichment, and social development. Positive Steps affords young women, ages 12-17, an opportunity to further recognize their potential for success. Positive Steps Program participants take an active role in a variety of NCBW events and they are recognized for achievement during the annual Madam C.J. Walker Business and Professional Women’s Luncheon. Participants may also receive graduation and matriculation awards and an opportunity to receive one of the Coalition’s Annual Scholarship Awards.

Our vision is to see young women STEP into a POSITIVE future, one STEP at a time!

The Yearly Events and Activities may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Mentoring by NCBW members
  • Community Service Activities
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Exposure
  • Financial Literacy Education
  • Health, Nutrition & Fitness Activities
  • Positive Steps Essay Contest Participation
  • Madam C. J. Walker Luncheon Attendance & Recognition
  • Unique Activities, Events and Outings that you help select and plan!
