About

The Young Women's Leadership of Brooklyn empowers young women to become confident and compassionate leaders. We nurture the intellectual curiosity of the whole girl to maximize her academic achievement, socio-emotional well-being, and post-secondary success. Part of a network of Young Women's Leadership Network (YWLN) schools, we are an all-girls school with a mission to prepare young women to be successful leaders in their communities. Every YWLN school is supported by the CollegeBound Initiative (CBI) which ensures college access and financial aid options for every student. We work with parents as partners in preparing every student for post-secondary opportunities. Our students graduate from college at a rate 3x higher than their peers and go on to successful careers! TYWLS strives to instill in students a sense of self-efficacy and community responsibility, characteristics which will support them as they become the leaders of the next generation.
