YWLP Participant Attends Reproductive Freedom Day!

Young Women’s Leadership Program participant, Ivy Lynn Wilson attended Reproductive Freedom Day in Sacramento, CA organized by the California Coalition of Reproductive Freedom.

Each year Women’s Health Specialists selects delegates who stand out as organizers in their community to attend Reproductive Freedom Day. Ivy, a past participant of the Young Women’s Leadership Program was one of the delegates selected to attend the 2011 Reproductive Freedom Day. Below is a statement from Ivy about her experience.

“Through my different roles as a student from the Anderson Union High School District, youth peer educator for Local Indians for Education and community activist for Women’s Health Specialists through the Young Women’s Leadership Program, I attended the 9th Annual Reproductive Freedom Day in Sacramento CA on March 22, 2011.

During the conference, I applied the information that I learned to my own life experiences and values. I got to share my own opinion and represent other youth in my community.

This was a good experience for me as a young teen. I felt empowered knowing I could make a difference in my local community and at a statewide level. I had lots of fun meeting new people and going to workshops.”

Please continue to support our Young Women’s Leadership Program. Your support is what makes it possible for young women like Ivy to build self-confidence and leadership skills that they can use their entire life.

Stay tuned for our next project update where we will announce the location and date of our next Young Women’s Leadership Program!

Planning for Next Young Women’s Leadership Program

Young Women
Young Women's Leadership Program Participant

As a Young Women’s Leadership Program supporter, you are making a difference in young women’s lives. Your donations directly benefit all the young women who participate in our one week program designed to give young women the reproductive health knowledge and life skills they need to build self-confidence and leadership abilities.

As we enter into 2011, we look forward to planning our fourth annual Young Women’s Leadership Program. Using information given to us by past participants, we will tailor our training sessions to better meet the needs of the young women. Our goal is to continue to build on the successful model we started with in order to stay relevant.

Thank you for your continued support and for keeping the Young Women’s Leadership Program accessible to young women with limited access to reproductive health services and lack of resources and knowledge needed to feel comfortable with their sexuality.

Support Our Next Young Women’s Leadership Program!

We are ready to do another Young Women’s Leadership Program and we need your support to make it happen. Below are two testimonials by participants from our most recent program held in Chico, California this past summer.

“I had a great experience at the Young Women’s Leadership Program. I learned that no matter what, there is always someone available to help you. Whether it’s about sex, families, or yourself there’s always a community resource a phone call away to help you get the information. I also learned that there are all kinds of support groups for almost any kind of situation. Overall, I had a great experience and I would recommend this program to all of my friends - especially the ones that go to the internet for advice about sex.” Jasmine Robinson, Program Participant

“The Young Women’s Leadership Program I attended in Chico, California was a very positive experience for me. I feel like I have enough information to function smoothly and an incredible circle of women I can go to if I ever need anything." Gisella William, Program Participant

Empowering young women to share their experiences and ideas; to make health-care information relevant; and to increase access to community services and other vital resources is what every participant will experience. Be a part of this amazing program and make a contribution today!
