Young Women Circle


Young Women Circle is an opportunity for intersectional and young females ages 15 to 26 to share, discuss, and debate constructively to help build empowerment. YWC strives to emulate our three pillars to Educate, Engage, and Empower through diversity & inclusion while advocating for women’s economic empowerment.


YW includes various activities throughout the Fall & Spring seasons such as opportunities to be part of the Genius Circle (a Leadership Task Force team), the Chat & Chew and GroupMe Networks, attend our Power Hour and Advocacy Seminars, Mentorship and Volunteerism. **see below under activities and program calendar.


Opportunity: If you are a local High School young woman and thinking about attending the University of Toledo for college, wonderful news – you will have the opportunity to transition and become part of our YWOT-Univ of Toledo Chapter which will help you continue to grow and expand your local network while improving your advocacy skills.
