Leadership Development

Tapping into & developing leadership skills


“Leadership is not only acknowledging your worth, but the value of others as well. When we work as a team, we can inspire others to do the same.”

Young Women LEAD arose from a desire of aspiring women professionals to give back. They sought to develop leadership skills and confidence in high school girls. Just as these women gave of their time and talents, we encourage today’s young women to follow in their footsteps and pay it forward.

Through our leadership development offerings on our new portal, we provide resources on how high school girls can give back to their communities.

To get started, we encourage them to get started by creating school-based YWL Clubs. When they establish their YWL Clubs, they can tap into philanthropy focused materials, as well as our leadership curriculum.

YWL Clubs

YWL Clubs can be implemented in any school serving high school girls in grades 9-12. Students and educators are encouraged to initiate YWL Clubs and organizations in their schools to carry forward and extend the messaging from the YWL Live! events. These clubs can be part of the extracurricular offerings, advisory groups, or club options in the students’ individual schools.

YWL Clubs are provided access to the YWL web-based curriculum portal that builds on YWL’s tradition of excellence. The portal offers extended year-long learning experiences and a dynamic instructional platform focused on workforce skills, leadership development, and STEM career mentorship opportunities. This unique approach allows the opportunity for access and inclusion for diverse students to learn from and support one another along their career continuum.
