Our Mission

To empower young women to lead healthy lives filled with positive options.

Our goal is to help girls gain the knowledge, skills and personal power to become change agents in their lives and their communities.

We deliver a holistic approach to health—mind, body, spirit—to middle school and high school girls in Kansas City, KS. Girls in the urban core often face extreme environmental stressors and low expectations for achieving their potential.

YWOM instills a foundation of moral values, character, and an affirming self-belief system with individualized support, counseling, mentoring, team building, goal setting, and accountability. Girls learn to enhance their decision making and problem solving skills, physical and mental health, social and communication skills, and academic and career preparation.
