IMGP5906We are excited to invite teenage girls (ages 14-18) in the Brooklyn area to participate in the exciting and educational year-long Young Women Rock! Leadership Program.

About the Program
The Young Women Rock! Mentorship Program is dedicated to strengthening the lives and communities of young women in urban neighborhoods through a curriculum based, group, and one-on-one mentorship program for high schoolers that includes weekly sessions and monthly cultural outings. Young Women Rock! supports young women to develop their self-esteem and make informed decisions for themselves in the face of severe societal pressure, and illustrating that they have a network of support and resources available to them. YWR! sessions foster self-respect and love, leadership skills, creativity, team work, critical thinking, and collaboration.

YWR! empowers girls through mentorship, building their self-confidence and challenging them to discover and fulfill their potential.
