Young Women’s Leadership Network (YWLN) is in the business of empowering New York City public school students to make the dream of college a reality – we need you to be a part of our team!

Our work across at our 34 CollegeBound Initiative partner schools – including our five Young Women’s Leadership Schools – impacts more than 18,000 young women and young men from low-income communities. From early college awareness activities to personalized counseling and enrollment support, YWLN works with every student and their families, to identify the best college for their academic interests and financial needs. 


Empower NYC public school students and their families this #GivingTuesday!

This #GivingTuesday (November 28th), be a part of a team that empowers the parents and guardians of NYC public school students throughout the college and financial aid application process!

At each of YWLN's 34 CollegeBound Initiative partner schools, our talented Directors of College Counseling provide personalized counseling for students and their families and lead comprehensive parent orientation and financial aid application workshops. This targeted help for families makes a huge difference and ultimately impacts the level of financial aid generated for students.

At $1,000 per school, we can sustain parent education program at all 34 schools. Join us in expanding our #CollegeDreamTeam!
