Summer 2016 was the inaugural year of RBPF Houston. The program focuses on personal and professional development and female empowerment. Participants attend themed sessions where they interact and dialogue with their peers, mentors, and career professionals. Field trips and other activities provide participants with tangible hands-on opportunities to learn and grow. They are introduced to the skills and experiences that are needed for specific fields and how to conduct themselves as professional, talented young ladies. Participants also have an opportunity to network with professionals and showcase their talents during the program finale.
