YWLP Information

The Young Women Leaders Program is a mentoring program that matches 7th and 8th-grade middle school girls with undergraduate women from UVA for a year-long mentoring relationship. Through weekly group mentoring meetings and 1 on 1 mentoring interaction, our program is dedicated to fostering leadership and autonomy in our Little Sisters.
