Young Women Rock! is a curriculum based, group, and one-on-one mentorship program dedicated to strengthening the lives and communities of girls (14-18) in impoverished neighborhoods. The year-long program empowers girls, building their self-esteem and challenging them to fulfill their potential.

Young Women Rock! supports young women to develop their self-esteem and make informed decisions for themselves in the face of severe societal pressure, and illustrating that they have a network of support and resources available to them. YWR! sessions foster self-respect and love, leadership skills, creativity, team work, critical thinking, and collaboration.

The program matches girls with mentors who benefit from weekly group sessions, a one-on-one relationship, and culturally enriching outings. Each mentor receives extensive training and support from TWWI staff to promote the success of the mentoring match and to ensure the match is sustained for at least one full academic year cycle.
