Welcome to the Young Women Leaders Program

If you are a high school girl or a professional woman in the Coachella Valley, you've come to the right place!

If you are interested in volunteering as a speaker, career panelist, ambassador, or can provide virtual job shadow opportunities, please email YWL@wlfdesert.org


The program will continue remotely for the 2020-2021 school year. We appreciate your patience as we plan for the best virtual experience.  If you are interested in participating, please use the "Register/Apply" button below. We will be in contact with more information as the program is finalized.

We are pleased to offer educational workshops and scholarships of up to $5,000 for high school seniors.  Awards are based on monthly attendance, student project rating, and estimated family contribution.  We also offer limited merit-based scholarships.

Past workshops and skills learned include effective presentations, business etiquette, college application and essay support, and more. YWL scholarship students are attending universities throughout the United States studying business, education, pre-medicine and other majors.

We're looking forward to an informative and impactful year!
