Young Women's Voices

We recognize that young women often struggle to connect with their faith community in ways that seem relevant to their lives. With this in mind we offer a space for young women to connect with each other, to find a source of inspiration and a sense of understanding. We hope that this space will act a catalyst, enabling young women to claim their public voice and lead the way forward not only in their churches, but in their local and global communities.
