Teen Empowerment – LEAD Program

LEAD, the YWCA Leadership Development Program, is designed to empower pre-teen and teen girls by focusing on three areas:
LEADERSHIP – building leadership skills that support self-respect, self-control, and positive decision-making skills
EMPOWERMENT – challenging them to explore their world and current issues through engaged and creative learning
DEVELOPMENT – guiding and developing character and confidence that will encourage and promote effective communication skills, positive goal setting, and a strong foundation for a successful adulthood.

LEAD offers an ongoing leadership development program that meets on a bi-weekly basis and covers topics which include:
> self-respect
> healthy relationships
> love and dating
> goal setting
> cultural competency
> drugs and alcohol
> personal and cyber safety
> effective communication skills 

To sign up for the leadership program, contact Dr. Nashawna Joseph at njosephywca@gmail.com
