Who we are:

The WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP PROJECT (WLP) is a feminist mentoring, civic engagement and service learning advocacy program designed (for young women of color) to educate and train young middle and high school age women in South Los Angeles to take ownership of their school-communities. 

We also have a sub-section of the group called: Young Male Scholars (YMS), which is similar to WLP, but tailored for young men of color.

We also celebrate and promote self-care, collaborations within our communities and networking. Our organization strives to educate young women (and men) of color on many issues like:

* History of Women of Color 

* Sexual Harassment/ Education around sexual health

* Black Literature Circle

* College field trips and Career exploration
