A special educational foundation has been established in Dr. Braiker's memory. One of its key missions is to provide leadership and self-esteem training for adolescents.
The Harriet Braiker Leadership Retreat for Girls
The Dr. Harriet Braiker Memorial Foundation took 42 high school girls -- 32 freshmen and 10 specially-trained Senior Leaders -- on an innovative three-day weekend retreat to teach them leadership skills, as well as training in self-esteem and self-confidence.
At the conclusion of the retreat, all girls completed an evaluation form, and also were asked:
"Describe briefly how the retreat affected you" and "What was the most important skill you learned at the retreat?"
