Purpose & Belonging: My 3 Years wtih YWLP

"I was dedicated to this program and it gave so much back to me. I signed up for YWLP expecting a meaningful but pretty straightforward mentoring experience. Instead I got a life-changing experience that made me an emotionally stronger, wiser, and more patient leader. I got way more than I bargained for, and for that I am forever grateful."

-Gabriella Schmidt
