We work tirelessly to help young women gain the knowledge, skills, and personal power to create change in their lives and their communities. Asia is just one of the hundreds of girls we have helped since we embarked on our mission a decade ago. As we move into our second decade, we want to help even more girls flourish into the young women we know they can be.
Every day of the school week, our staff members and volunteers mentor adolescent girls in 13 Kansas City, Kan., middle and high schools. The girls are discovering their strengths. They are learning self-discipline and team work. They are tackling difficult personal and community problems. High school girls are being paired with middle school girls as peer mentors so they can learn to be change makers.
For Kansas City’s youth living in poverty and extreme stress, coping skills will determine their surviving or thriving. That’s a hard thing to do by yourself … to be healthy, capable and resilient. Many girls who come to Young Women on the Move are struggling, looking for hope, acceptance and trust. We want the girls to know they’re not alone.
So we’re here every week. But we can’t do it alone, either.
Come alongside us as we do this essential work with the girls in our area.
Please consider giving to Young Women on the Move today. Your support will help us unleash the power of girls to create a vibrant, healthy and peaceful world.
Your gift is so important. I can’t thank you enough, but I do thank you.
