Young Women’s Leadership Board

The Young Women’s Leadership Board is an Economic Empowerment Program that addresses the growing need to teach personal finance, digital skills, and job skills to young women in order to increase their financial independence and economic success.

The Young Women’s Leadership Board is a youth-led council which organizes projects that align with our mission and support 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, and gain valuable leadership skills.

The next cohort will begin in Summer 2022. To get involved, please email
