About Us

Y-WE cultivates the power of diverse young women* to be creative leaders and courageous changemakers through transformative programs within a collaborative community of belonging.

We envision a society rooted in social justice, where all young women* live their truth, achieve their dreams, and change our world.

*those who identify as women or girls or were assigned female at birth

Each year we directly serve over 700 girls and women, impacting over 2000 community members. Y-WE is distinctive in several ways:

Our programs are based on an arts/empowerment model that values creative expression as a means of developing self-confidence

We use a group mentoring model that fosters an inter-generational community between mentors and mentees, and amongst our adult women mentors

We are dedicated to doing this in the context of an intercultural community. We are one of the only organizations in our region that actively brings together young women from different neighborhoods, schools, religions, cultures, and races so that young women learn from difference and become global citizens.

The result is an organization that fosters authentic long-term relationships in a diverse community, as well as a tremendously loyal following from its participants, mentors and alum.
