Girls in the urban core often face extreme environmental stressors and low expectations for achieving their potential. Young Women on the Move helps girls discover their personal power and develop skills and behaviors that lead to healthier lifestyle choices. We help them navigate the challenging adolescent years and become healthy, emotionally resilient adults.
Here are some of the outcomes of our program:
Graph 1 is the percent increase in healthy behaviors and knowledge of YWOM
members during the course of one year.
Graph 2 shows the rate of teen pregnancies statistically per every 1,000 girls.
Graph 3 shows the high school graduation rate for YWOM and Wyandotte County.
