YWLC Year-Round Programming

YWCA Hartford Region’s Young Women’s Leadership Corps (YWLC) provides a personal development program during the academic school year for teen girls (ages 13-18) throughout the Hartford Region.

Young girls learn critical life skills through project-based workshops, focusing on financial literacy, college and career exploration, advocacy, team building and personal leadership development. Our program empowers teen girls, fosters teamwork, personal enrichment, and builds lifelong friends in a fun, supportive and safe space.

During the academic year, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in exciting activities, including:

  • Workshops on personal growth, leadership development, decision-making, goal-setting and interpersonal skills
  • Financial literacy, including how to budget and save
  • College and career exploration, including college tours
  • Introduction to civic engagement, advocacy, and the chance to work together on community service projects
  • Learn from women leaders who will lead inspirational trainings and workshops, including networking and interview skills, public speaking, and their journey to becoming leaders in the Hartford community.
