Young Empowered Women (YEW) is a program hosted by Voices Carry Child Advocacy Center serving Larimer County. YEW is a mentoring group that serves as a resource and network of support for girls ages 10-15. The goal is to empower young girls with their own potential to be leaders in their lives as well as in their communities. The YEW encourages girls to seek and celebrate their “true selves” by giving them a safe space, encouragement, structure, and support to embrace their important journies of self-discovery. A strength-based approach helps girls identify and apply their power and voice as individuals and as a group focusing on issues that are important in the lives of adolescent girls. Topics include learning about self, connecting with others, mindfulness, exploring healthy living and planning for the future. The aim of the program is to build confidence by applying newfound leadership abilities, passion, power, and purpose and share it with the world.
By investing in the dreams of young girls from high-risk, low-income communities and by encouraging and supporting their visions for the future, we are uplifting the quality of life for all.
YEW meets in the evening once a month.The group is at no cost and dinner is served. Please contact Ana at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-407-9739 for more information or to refer a girl to the program.
