Complexity Story

Today we welcome Angela Patton. As the leader of NPO Girls for a Change, Angela has been recognized in the local Richmond, VA press as a Top 40 under 40, by a coalition of girl serving groups in 2015 identifying Girls For A Change as one of five programs to note, establish a long-term partnership with the NoVo Foundation , and in 2016 by President Obama as A White House Champion of Change for After School programming for Marginalized Girls of Color. Angela is an Ambassador for who she calls “at-promise” (as opposed to “at-risk”) girls and a serial innovator. Angela is committed to “Preparing Black girls for the World …and the World for Black Girls. Angela foundedCamp Diva in Richmond, Va., in 2004, to honor Diva Mstadi Smith-Roan a five-year-old who died in a firearm accident earlier that year. That summer, Angela planned a two-w experience that gave Diva's mother an opportunity to share her motherly love with girls in need of a support system. The program grew and went national in October 2013, when Camp Diva merged with California-based Girls For A Change (GFAC), a nonprofit through which 100 girls' groups throughout the nation work together to envision and execute lasting change in their neighborhoods, cities, or schools Patton, is the CEO of the merged organization. In the summer of 2016 Patton lead her board and staff retool the focus and build a program structure to more accurately reflect GFAC's goal to work with Black girls and to disseminate our programs using a specific, replicable approach.
