On June 29, we will host a special celebration to honor the 2017 YW LEADers (graduates!), who are transitioning from high school to college. These college-bound seniors have all been accepted to competitive colleges with scholarships, and we look forward to sending them off with everything they need to be successful as they pursue their dreams. You can support them too via the College Shower Registries below! #OnAMission
