NYC Travel Experience

$1169 per person

Disconnect from the world and reconnect with yourself during the Black Girl Travel Movement (BGTM) New York Travel Experience- Self Empowerment Summit.   BGTM is more than a travel group, we are a MOVEMENT dedicated to empowering black women to celebrate their lives through travel.  It’s time for your to make yourself a priority and take the time that you need to focus on YOU!

Why New York

New York is one of the world’s most dynamic, robust and exciting cities. Whether you are a foodie, a shopaholic, a fine art enthusiast or a music head, NYC has something for everyone. We will wine, dine, shop, watch, sing, dance and absorb the energy of this most vibrant metropolis.

Who Should Attend

This Self Empowerment Weekend is for anyone who has lost herself in the daily grind; who has exhausted themselves with the constant care of others; who has misplaced her own dreams in the process of nurturing others and who has become tired, frustrated, disgruntled passengers in our own life journeys. As a result, life is passing them by and they are left depressed, angry, disheartened, lonely, worthless, envious, melancholy, in poor health, no motivation and un-alluring.
