Make A Difference Today

In NYC, the chance to attend college is out of reach for many students. Luckily, YWLN has a Recipe for Success, proven to help students reach their dreams of higher education and leadership. In fact, our students attain bachelor’s degrees at 4x the rate of their peers.


As you can see, many ingredients go into our successful network of Young Women’s Leadership Schools (TYWLS) and CollegeBound Initiative (CBI) Programs. We need your help to make college a reality for our students! Below are a few examples of how your gifts will make an impact.

College Trips: We send students to visit their dream colleges so they can imagine their lives as leaders on campus!

Personalized College Counseling: Our Directors of College Counseling help students tackle the complex college admissions, financial aid, and enrollment process with one-to-one guidance!

STEM for Girls: We provide innovative science, technology, engineering and math programming for young women that sparks interest and genius!

Area of Greatest Need: Allow YWLN to direct your contribution to a program requiring your immediate support.

For questions about your gift’s impact or our other ingredients, please contact Sarah Wendt, Director of Major Gfifts, at or (212) 207-3221 ext. 261.
