The workshop was facilitated by New American Pathway Olivia Reburn – AmeriCorps Member and was held at the Clarkston Library in Clarkston Georgia.
“Girls from around the world confront obstacles growing up and reaching their full potential and they need positive female role models – women who have overcome barriers to become successful. They need examples of women who gain strength by coming together and embracing the importance of giving back to their
communities. Who’s better to set that example?” Young Women’s Leadership Program (YWLP) by New American Pathways engages 20 high school girls each year to develop the skills and
knowledge they need to build healthy relationships, make safe and responsible decisions, and prepare for high school graduation and long-term economic self-sufficiency.
The program serves refugee girls from the metro Atlanta area and it is designed to better prepare these young women for a future of success through helping them obtain personal, professional and academic goals. The workshops include adult mentoring and leadership programming that fosters positive mental health, academic encouragement, safe and healthy lifestyles and encourages financial independence, leadership, confidence, and supportive peer relationships among girls.
