Women's Health Specialists is very honered to be invited and have our staff take part in this empowering weekend.  Youth will be able to take this education back to their communities formatted to educate and empower youth within their culture.

This provides a content rich program that engages and empowers future community leaders and a positive change for our community and beyond.

I want to share some successes from 2 past graduates of the WHS YES trainings.

Jackie, went thru our YES training, and here are her thoughts.I have used what I have learned from the Young Women's Leadership Program by referring my friends to Women's Health Specialists and to all of the other organizations in my community. Local Indians for Education offered me the job of Teen Program Manager that I have held for 1 year and have worked with many yourth during this time. Have gone back to school at Shasta College and now working on my Nursing Degree. Thank you for providing this great program it really did change my life and and I found my power for change.

Ivy, "What I learned from the Young Women's Leadershiup Program is how important it is to know yourself and your body. They taught us about informed choices for reproductive health,community resources and had inter-active presentations that supported what we learned. I am now attending Shasta College anf going into the Law Enforcement field. After the program was over I would definitely do it again!
