500 Club

Banding together to drive change

 

Imagine how much faster your career would have accelerated if you’d reached higher levels of personal growth and development as a teenager.

Join the 500 club

Uniting to energize a nationwide movement

Since Young Women LEAD’s inception, women have banded together to give voice and life to our mission. We know we’ll need leaders — 500, in fact — to give lift to our next endeavors.

With support from members of our newly created 500 Club, Young Women Lead will have the power and resources to grow from a regional presence to a movement that educates and empowers girls in grades 9-12 nationwide.

The 500 Club’s annual membership of $500 gives girls in grades 9-12 the learning and development opportunities that so many of us craved growing up. The Club is open to 500 members and gifts are tax-deductible.*

With the 500 Club’s support, we’re:

  • Producing regular Young Women LEAD Live! events,
  • Developing a free leadership curriculum for high schools, and
  • Providing free resources for all girls to implement their own YWL Clubs.

*Please consult your tax accountant.
