The planning team is actively recruiting 14 young women who will have the opportunity to participate in the 2012 Young Women’s Leadership Program schedule to take place this June in Chico, California.
We are excited to offer this unique program to young women in Northern California. These young women will be inspired to create a network of positive relationships and connections among youth peers, adults, local organizations and community groups. At the end of the program they will have gained confidence, the power they need to make alliances with women, reproductive health care information and become positive, productive forces in their communities.
As recruitment continues, we are finalizing the program details which draws on the expertise of local service agencies and clinic peer health educators detailing STD, HIV and pregnancy prevention information in a culturally sensitive and competent manner. New plans included inviting the 2010 participants back to talk about their experiences since they completed the Young Women’s Leadership Program. Two of the past participants planning to attend will share their story about participating as a community delegate on behalf of Women's Health Specialists at the 2012 Reproductive Freedom Day held in Sacramento, California last March.
As we get closer to the program date, it is apparent that more funds are still needed to pull off a successful event. Any amount helps. $35.00 will pay for one young woman’s meals and $50.00 will pay for one young woman’s supplies. Whatever you can give will go directly to support one of the 14 young women selected for our 2012 Young Woman’s Leadership Program this June.
