Applicants must be high achieving, sophomore girls who are motivated to go to college and willing to commit to at least 2.5 years of weekly activities, including engaging, supportive and empowering programming to help them achieve their goals and become YW LEADers at their high schools, colleges, and in their communities.  Students can apply here: YW LEAD Brooklyn Online Application.
