The Young Women’s* Leadership Board is in the process of launching! It is a youth-led council which organizes projects that align with our mission while also supporting the YWCA Berkeley/Oakland.
In previous years, council members worked to organize and host the popular Shadow Day and Week Without Violence. Council members will self-elect a governing board, create and implement projects, while gaining valuable leadership skills. A few projects may include leading the YW Strive Teen curriculum which works to deliver workforce development curriculum to teen girls* ages 14-19.
If you are interested in learning more and/or getting involved in any capacity, email workforcedevelopment@ywca-
*Our use of “girls” and “women” is inclusive of all cis and trans women, non-binary, gender non-conforming, gender queer, and any female-identified folks.
