We lead with purpose, we lead with passion, we lead with compassion. To grow as leaders, we must understand ourselves as individuals and as a community. Y-WE Lead offers young women ages 13-18 the opportunity for self-discovery, building leadership skills, and creating intergenerational community with diverse youth and mentors.
“Y-WE provides mentorship and empowerment programs for teen women in the greater Seattle area. We serve a diverse group of girls, ages 13-18, and women mentors, ages 19-70+. The organization is open to young women from all walks of life. Currently, over 70% of the youth are immigrants to the US and 80% of the youth and 50% of the adults are women of color. Our youth and mentors also represent a myriad of family, sexual orientation, religious, political, and educational backgrounds. We offer our programs free of charge, and we invite families to contribute as they are able. Each year we directly serve over 500 girls and women; and we impact over 1500 community members.”
