Each fall, YWLN's (Em)Power Breakfast celebrates the students served by The Young Women's Leadership Schools (TYWLS).  Our network of five high-performing, all-girls public secondary schools empower more than 2,000 girls annually to achieve their higher education dreams and fulfill their learning and leadership potential. TYWLS alumnae achieve four-year college degrees at more than triple the rate of their peers!

By joining us on October 15, you will support the dreams of thousands of young girls across New York City.

The 2014 (Em)Power Breakfast will honor four individuals who are champions for educational access:

  • Idina Menzel*, Tony Award-winning Broadway star and Golden Globe and Academy Award-nominated singer
  • Dina Powell, President of the Goldman Sachs Foundation, Global Head of the Office of Corporate Engagement, and Head of Goldman Sachs Bank USA's Urban Investment Group
  • Anna Quindlen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author
  • And "The Man We Love:" Andrew Farkas - Chairman and CEO of Island Capital Group

They join a group of distinguished past honorees and supporters of YWLN’s (Em)Power Breakfast.

This year's breakfast will be co-chaired by Sandi Farkas and Terri McCullough
