For over 20 years, AFYW has been providing valuable leadership opportunities to young women ages 12-18. The program has demonstrated proven results in increasing girls’ self-esteem, academic performance, leadership skills, and knowledge of gender issues.

AFYW provides an intensive 30-week leadership development curriculum that includes training in public speaking, problem solving, goal setting, and critical thinking. The young women also address important issues affecting their lives such as body image, identity, global issues, relationships, and social media. The program culminates with an Annual Youth Leadership Conference organized and facilitated by the young women to educate their peers and spread awareness on issues of importance to them.
