YWCA Houston

Lead


Girls and women have always been leaders, but their leadership has often gone unrecognized. Throughout history, women and girls have emerged as formal and informal leaders of significant social movements and blazed pathways to progress and change. To address the lack of recognition and opportunities for girls and women as leaders and their contributions to social change, the YWCA of Houston provides programs and events designed as a platform to enact social change, build leadership skills, and celebrate women in leadership.
