Youth Empowerment Programs

  • Multicultural Female Leadership Conference: Annual conference for ethnically diverse middle school girls designed to empower, educate, inspire, and create future leaders.
  • Girls & Boys Circles:  Small groups designed to guide youth towards resiliency, self-awareness, and confidence, and to reinforce a sense of belonging, improve their communication skills, and encourage healthy choices.
  • Young People of Achievement Awards: Annual awards honoring five local youth, ages 16-18, who have faced significant challenges in their lives and have demonstrated efforts that support the YWCA mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.
