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!

Chico, California Young Women’s Leadership Program a Huge Success

Working together to build new friendships
Working together to build new friendships

What an AMAZING week – What a SUCCESSFUL program!

Today marks the final day of the Young Women’s Leadership Program in Chico, California. Twelve young women from within the community of Chico spent the week together learning about community services and resources, reproductive health care and life skills that will have an impact on them the rest of their lives.

Beyond Violence Alliance, 6th Street Drop-in-Center, Stonewall Alliance, Catalyst and Butte Community College are a few of the local organizations that presented to the young women. Topics ranged from teen violence, reproductive health care and how to get services, resources for homeless teens, issues facing the LGBT community and programs available to teens who want to further their education.

During their final presentations today it was evident that the young women walked away with many valuable resources that will empower them and those they come in contact with to share what they have learned. In addition to the resources they received throughout the week, this diverse group of dynamic young women created a bond with each other that is sure to last a lifetime.

I want to thank all those who have contributed to our project. Without the support of the donations we received from you, this week wouldn’t have been possible!

Please continue to contribute to the Young Women’s Leadership Program so we can continue to provide a program that empowers young community women!
