Girls' Leadership
Young Womens Christian Association of Warren OH
YWCA Warren is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. In 2015, YWCA Warren launched a new Girls’ Leadership program for high school girls, with 22 9th and 10th grade girls participating during the 2015-2016 school year. This program is developing the next generation of female leaders in our community by recognizing and enhancing girls’ strengths; providing them opportunities to work effectively with each other and with positive adult role models; and engaging them in hands-on community service projects. We are applying for renewed funds to continue the program in 2017. The Girls’ Leadership program aligns with YWCA Warren’s vision that if we invest in women -- providing them with hope for the future; connecting them with resources to build their skills and earn a decent wage; and giving them access to safe, affordable, housing and health care -- they will in turn have more resources to invest in their own families, thereby lifting up the entire community of Warren.
