Young Woman's Empowerment Journal

Workshop Opportunity

The Young Woman’s Empowerment Journal is a workbook of thought provoking questions originally created for a College Now sponsored workshop in New York City. The workshop bridged high school Latinas into college courses at the local community college, which gave the students the opportunity to have the college experience and helped them to plan for a successful lifestyle.
