Through a partnership with Skyland Elementary School, The Women and Gender Resource Center offers two gender-based leadership programs, each with unique pillars customized to the needs of 4th and 5th graders in our community.
Each program meets for two hours of training each week for 10 weeks during the Fall semester. In the Spring, student mentors or “bigs” are paired with a 4th or 5th grade “little” at Skyland Elementary. The group meets together at the elementary school one afternoon a week for 10 weeks in the Spring to work through a leadership curriculum that includes both group and one-on-one activities.
The deadline for applications is September 15th, 2017. Beginning on September 20th, YMLP training will be held on Wednesday’s from 3:00 to 4:30 and YWLP on Wednesdays from 2:30 to 4:00. Attendance at training is mandatory. Applications are available online.
Based on the pillars of identity, leadership, and connection, The Young Women Leaders Program seeks to help girls better understand themselves in relation to their communities.
The Young Men’s Leadership Program is founded on three pillars: identity, leadership, and strength.
