Young Women's Leadership Council
A unique opportunity for high school girls (14-8 years old) from diverse backgrounds to participate in a service-learning and leadership development.
The Persimmon Club is a philanthropic group that champions the YWCA of Houston and its mission to eliminate racism and empower women.
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 support girls and women on their path to success, the YWCA of Houston provides programs and events as a platform to enact social change, build leadership skills, and celebrate women in leadership.
