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!
