Lead with confidence. Lead with creativity. Lead with compassion.

What does it take to be a leader? Imagination, confidence, and great self- care. Y-WE Lead offers young women* ages 13-18 the opportunity to explore their leadership through workshops in art, performance, health and wellness. The program includes learning and community engagement opportunities that support success in school, career and life. Together we will co-create an intergenerational community of diverse youth and mentors committed to supporting one another and healing our communities.

This cohort will take place January 25, 2020 – May 23, 2020, meeting two Saturday’s a month at El Centro de la Raza. Program days will be from 10am-2:30pm.

Y-WE Lead: Code 

Applications are currently closed.

Who owns the internet? Who is behind the technology that you use every day? And what does it mean to be a creator of technology?

In Y-WE Code, young women* ages 13-18 explore ways to use technology tools for learning, career success, self-expression, social change and the history of women in technology. Within an intergenerational community of diverse youth and adult women mentors, we will get hands-on with coding and digital technology, develop college and career readiness, explore ways that we can keep growing creativity through technology, grow as leaders and discover ways we can use technology to make a difference, and practice different methods of project management.

This Y-WE Lead Learning Community will meet two Tuesday’s a month for the duration of the school year at El Centro de la Raza from 4:30pm-7:30pm.
