LCL YLI LEAD Core Program was co-founded in 2006 by a group of women committed to helping African American and Latina adolescent girls (ages 12-18) define themselves as women. Since it’s humble beginnings as a 8-week self-esteem mentoring program Youth LEAD has evolved into a 12-week leadership development program for diverse young women designed to help girls to understand themselves as individuals, members of their community and leaders in society. Through our weekly 2 hour workshop series young girls have the opportunity to progress through each of our three modules. Understanding ourselves as individuals focuses on self-esteem, mental health and physical well-being. Becoming members of our community redefines how young women look at and engage with their “disenfranchised” neighborhoods as they learn to identify and connect with the assets in their communities. Leading in society integrates ones sense of self, community and culture into a model of leadership that encourages and calls young women into their uniquely defined roles as leaders.
The 2012 program will begin in June!
