YOUTH EMPOWERMENT ZONE CAMP FOR TEEN GIRLS
(AGES 12-18) 

YWCA Empowerment Zone Camp designed by and for young women, ages 12 to 18. The program encourages young women to explore their own personal values and discover their strengths, build self-esteem and new friendships, explores new ideas, develops fresh skills, and empowers girls to dream big. 

We provide countless activities based on several components: physical, emotional, spiritual, environmental, intellectual and social wellness to provide a well-rounded experience for the girls.  

In the face of a culture that sexualizes young girls and places more value on external appearance rather than inner strength, YWCA of Houston’s Empowerment Zone is a safe and supportive environment for girls. Our staff and volunteers help girls build their confidence, explore important issues, develop strong and healthy relationships, practice their leadership skills, laugh, play, and have FUN!
