OUR STRATEGY

YWEA fosters positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development in girls.  We give our girls the opportunity to become global leaders and to raise awareness on topics that are important to their generation.  YWEA curriculum focuses on issues that all girls face and provides the tools and resources to make educated decisions in their lives.

ACADEMY PROGRAMS

Our programs are offered on a rotating basis throughout the year and is divided into Fall, Spring and Summer cycles of programing.  Our programs include:


Self-Sufficiency Program
We believe in teaching our young women the importance of being self-sufficient. This is
accomplished through our workshops and hands-on activities addressing the following topics:
Building healthy relationships, goal setting, conflict resolution skills, critical thinking and
problem-solving skills, communication and public speaking skills, and financial literacy. Our
program provides the tools and resources for young women to be confident in making decisions
for their lives.


Self-Empowerment Program
We believe in fostering an environment that allows young women to take control of their lives
and make positive choices. We help them understand their strengths and weaknesses and how to
have belief in themselves. This is accomplished through our workshops and hands-on activities
addressing the following topics: positive self-image, self-esteem, personal safety, self-defense,
social media, internet safety, violence prevention, pregnancy & drug abuse prevention, and
human trafficking awareness. We help to develop self-awareness and understand that knowing
your own limitations is key to personal empowerment.


Education, Career & Entrepreneurship Program
We believe that education plays a key component in the future success of young women. We
offer afterschool assistance with educational and tutoring needs. We encourage young women to
explore careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields. We host
career days to allow young women to meet professional women in all career fields. We prepare
them with our art of interviewing, mock interview, resume writing, and dress for success
workshops. We encourage them to explore the world of entrepreneurship by fostering an
environment for creativity and teamwork as young women work together towards a business
idea.

WE WANT TO COME TO YOU!

YWEA believes in empowering the community we live in. For that very reason, we have teamed up with schools, churches and local organizations in our community to make our program available for all young women. If you are interested in a presentation & to learn more about how YWEA can help empower the young women you serve, please feel free to complete our contact sheet below and a representative will be in touch within 1 business day.
