New Women New Yorkers (NWNY) is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering young women immigrants, particularly low-income women, living in New York City.
▪ NWNY is dedicated to serving young women immigrants between the ages of 18 and 35
▪ NWNY is a cross-community organization
▪ NWNY's upcoming projects are guided by the concept of transformative leadership: key goals are to help young women immigrants develop their potential, and become mentors and role-models for other young women immigrants
NWNY's upcoming projects and activities are organized around three pillars:
▪ Self-Expression – Empower and provide a safe, nurturing space for women's own voices, creativity, and healing process
▪ Education & Leadership Development - Improve women's social skills and access to information and decision makers in NYC, and increase women's leadership roles and participation in civic and community development
▪ Entrepreneurship - Provide women with economic education and business skills training, and support successful development of women-led business and non-profit projects
NWNY is led by its founder and Board of Directors, and is staffed by seven dedicated part-time volunteers whose diversity of personal backgrounds and skills is being leveraged upon to reach out to young women immigrants from various communities and neighborhoods in New York City, and to forge strong relationships with existing social service organizations.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us out with community outreach, blog writing, video/photography projects, fundraising & special events, graphic design & web development, and more.
