Young Women's Initiative

Our mission is to galvanize and invest resources to achieve a world with gender and racial equity where young women-particularly young women of color– lead, prosper economically, and live safe and healthy lives.

The Springfield Young Women Initiative (YWI) consists of up to 20 young women leaders, ages 16-24. Through leadership development and social justice programming delivered in partnership with 18 Degrees, these young leaders investigate barriers, explore solutions, and make recommendations for change in their community. The YWI will form task forces to facilitate a grantmaking process and to implement projects in partnership with community organizations in Western Massachusetts.

We believe that every young woman should have the tools and opportunity to lead and to thrive. Every young woman should live in a world with respect, justice, and safety.
