About

unleashes the positive potential of young women, 14-18 through an arts centered, multi-cultural seven month leadership program that values self-awareness, leadership, and social change.

This pilot program includes 40 young women and 25 mentors from a wide range of cultural backgrounds in the Seattle area. We focus on developing personal power and presence, media literacy, cross cultural skills, and activism. We are raising $3,000 to be able to serve all the girls who want to attend. YWOTR is a program of the Power of Hope, an arts empowerment organization that has been serving youth in the Pacific Northwest since 1996. www.powerofhope.org
