    HELPING GIRLS DREAM BIG

    Each year, roughly two dozen girls ages 11 to 17 from St. Kitts and Nevis come together through Girls Illuminated for an empowering two-week program designed to help them build skills, form friendships, and develop and share their ambitions for the future. With a 30-year history in the small island nation, Four Seasons Resort Nevis is connected to many aspects of community life and is proud to continue supporting the success of Girls Illuminated through its long-standing partnership. In 2022, the Resort sponsored the participation of two of the 24 attendees, and hosted and funded the Girls Illuminated graduation ceremony.
