What is Young Women Rock!?
Young Women Rock! is dedicated to strengthening the lives and communities of young women in under-served neighborhoods through a sustainable curriculum-based, group and one-on-one mentorship program. The mentorship program provides young women with the resources and support necessary to make positive life choices and create community change. Young Women Rock! encourages and empowers young women to make informed and healthy decisions about their relationships, sexual health, future options, and broader women’s issues.

How does Young Women Rock! work?
Pairing group-based mentoring with one-on-one mentor/mentee relationships, Young Women Rock! helps young women build self-esteem and awareness to make healthy choices as they mature. Each Saturday, a group of mentors lead interactive, fun and educational sessions on issues that are important to young women. We invite guest speakers and lead dynamic workshops, as well as take the young women on a cultural outing once a month.
