20 Years and Counting

Celebrate 20 years with YWLP

We ended the 2017-18 year by celebrating 20 years of Young Women Leaders - and by hosting a well-deserved send off for Winx Lawrence as she retired from UVA! To commemorate two decades of YWLP, Women's Center and Curry School faculty and staff connected with UVA alums around the country, gathering information about former Little Sisters, accepting mementos and stories from our Young Women Leaders favorite moments, and more. 

Thank you to the many YWLP alumnae who participated in our Spring 2017 survey! Faculty and staff who work with YWLP were thrilled to have your perspective on the program’s impact. Your tremendous pride in how you were able to support each other and the YWLP little sisters came through loud and clear from Class of 2000 alums (who were involved in the program’s earliest years) all the way to participants from the most recent graduating class. It is clear that you gained both confidence in yourselves and empathy with people who are different from you. And we were touched by how many of you found YWLP to be a defining part of your experience of UVA and of Charlottesville!

Are you a YWLP alum interested in helping learning how the program has grown or sharing a memory with us? We want to hear from you! Email Leigh Ann Carver to learn more.

We love seeing our alumni!

We love to catch up with YWLP alums during Reunions in June or any time our alums find themselves in Charlottesville.

Calling all 1999, 2004, 2009 and 2014 YWLP alums!

As you connect with classmates this winter and spring and craft your plans for Reunions in June, let us know! Coming back to Charlottesville for the whole weekend? Living in the area and hosting old friends at your place? Whatever Reunions looks like for you, we'd love for YWLP to be a part of it. And you can be among the first to see the newly renovated Women's Center, too. Email Leigh Ann Carver to exchange updates about how we can help you connect with YWLP alums, faculty and staff.
