What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Young Women's Leadership Corps (YWLC)

The Young Women’s Leadership Corps is a free after school program designed to engage young women in productive activities that develop leadership skills, encourage civic engagement, and help students prepare academic and career goals.  For many young women, this program is their first exposure to the possibility of continuing their education or pursuing a career.  After eight years over 700 young women have completed the YWLC program, which continues to guide participants to become productive leaders in their communities, workplaces, and schools.
 

Participants engage in productive learning activities to support them in making informed decisions regarding their futures. Workshop topics include college planning, job readiness, self-esteem, communication, leadership development, goal setting using SMART goals, financial literacy, and health and wellness. Workshop presenters, from a variety of professions, explain a range of career options. Activities include mentoring opportunities, field trips, a college tour, team building exercises, and community service projects.
