Join the YWEA Family

The Young Women's Empowerment Academy is dedicated to changing lives, one young woman at a time.

Our program consists of three sessions throughout the year: Fall In-Session, Spring In-Session and Summer Boot Camp.  Each session consists of different workshops, hands-on activities, community service and field trips with the same goal in mind: Empowering our next generation. 


We have 4 campuses that you can choose from:  Harrisburg, PA, Lynchburg, Va, Buffalo, NY, and our National Virtual Campus for young women in other parts of the United States.  



Here at YWEA you will experience life changing knowledge and skills that will help propel your future into new levels. Our program is designed around character building, self-image, accountability and developing leadership skills in girls ages 10-19.  We focus on the areas of education, entrepreneurship, service and influence to help raise up future leaders and educators.
