We're working on a new site and a new location for Young Women on the Move. Excuse the mess and head over to our Facebook to see photos from our 2017 Showcase!
Our mission is "to unleash the power of girls to create a more vibrant, healthy and peaceful world".
For ten wonderful years we have fulfilled this mission by leading our young women in various activities, projects and events in which they lead their peers and advocate for various causes such as the importance of seeking higher education, living healthier lifestyles, strengthening their relationship with God and much more. Girls in high school meet every Wednesday and participate in group projects that stimulate their leadership skills and their imaginations.
More than 7,600 girls in grades 7-12 drop out of school in Missouri and Kansas.
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... but we can't do it alone.
