Our mission is to unleash the power of girls to create a more vibrant, healthy, and peaceful world.

We are Young Women on the Move.

 

In Kansas and Missouri, more than 7,600 girls in grades 7-12 drop out of school. Of Kansas City’s families in poverty, 62.5% are female-headed, single parent households. We want to show these girls the path to a better life.

 

Young Women on the Move teaches middle school and high school girls the attitudes, behaviors, and skills necessary to lead a healthy life in every aspect. Its name symbolizes girls moving toward the future with healthy minds, bodies, and spirits focused on life’s amazing possibilities.
