2018 marks 40 years of empowering girls and young women! 
Join us for a series of 12 events throughout the year to celebrate where we've been, where we are and where we hope to be in the next 40.   
Each event will be an opportunity to learn more about the YWRC, show your support for the critical work we do with girls and young women and, of course, to celebrate with fellow community members! 
Individual and corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available.
Contact Kristin if you are interested.

It's no secret that growing up can be hard. Too often, the 1,500 young women we work with each year are faced with challenges early in life that put their future at risk. 
At the YWRC, we provide a safe and empowering environment for girls and young women to learn about themselves, build self-esteem and establish goals for a successful life. 
Help us continue to provide this life-changing, critical work to clients FREE of cost by making a year-end gift today.
