Young Women Empowered

Raise the Paddle

Y-WE Online Raise the Paddle

When you Raise the Paddle online, you provide vital support that makes Y-WE community possible for diverse young women*.      

When you Raise the Paddle, you raise your hand for healthy meals and transportation that brings youth to programs. You raise your hand for safe program spaces, trained mentors, skilled facilitators, seasoned staff leaders and an organizational container that young women and their families can trust and rely on.

Raise the Paddle so that young women have access to eye-opening, joyful experiences of learning and connecting in a community where they feel seen and valued – where they can blossom as creative leaders and courageous changemakers

Thank you for your generous partnership.
