The Young Women’s Initiative (YWI) is a project of The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham. YWI seeks to provide greater opportunities for girls and young women with a focus on educational, economic, and leadership opportunities, as well as improved health and safety for girls of color, LGBTQ and trans youth ages 15-21.
A Young Women’s Advisory Council will guide these efforts while developing leadership, advocacy and community-building skills. Our council will meet twice a month for approximately 8 months.
An exact start date has not been set, but meetings will begin in Late Fall/Winter, 2017.
Members will be paid stipends for their time and expertise.
