- because every young woman has the power to change her world -
There is clear and convincing evidence, amassed over more than seven decades, that when you empower a girl or woman, she rises as a catalyst for positive change. It’s transformational. For her and for those around her. Her success widens and reaches all those around her.
The question is not why, but why wait?
“live it up!has opened my eyes to an entire new world and I love it!”

what about young men?
Engaging boys and men is paramount in our discussion of young women’s leadership. It takes an entire community to evolve into a place of security and opportunity for all persons. The benefits achieved by our young women extend to the boys and men around them.
