Preparing future leaders and removing the barriers in their path.
empowerU has helped me become more confident and shown me different perspectives and different job outlooks that I could have. I like connecting with other girls in Bergen County because even though we might have different career paths for the future we all know that we will be able to make it as long as we help one another.
YWCA Northern New Jersey prepares girls for future leadership while working to dismantle the systemic barriers to opportunity and achievement. We’re proud that our programming reaches women and girls at various stages in their lives to support self determination, independence, and career-readiness. We also equip them with the tools to fight for gender equity in their communities.
