Young Women Empowered

COVID 19 Resources

Y-WE is working vigorously to respond to our community’s evolving needs – especially the needs of our young people – in all aspects of our programming.  

During this time we have helped our community by:

  • Creating a technology library so our youth have the tools they need to still be in community.

  • Delivering self-care packages with art supplies, seed starters, and notes.

  • Supporting parents, guardians, and alumni with navigating applications for unemployment, food stamps and other resources being offered.

  • Providing a space with a social worker where they can learn new tools to help support them not only during this pandemic but also in everyday life.

  • Airing programs like Meditation Monday, Womxn in Leadership, DIY Fridays on our YouTube channel.  

This new programming expresses our continuing commitment to cultivating the power of diverse young women* as leaders and changemakers in our communities as we all work together to flatten the curve.
