Youth Empowerment Program

A- A A+

Empowering youth to choose wisely, to build healthy relationships, and to find their voices creates a foundation for youth to succeed in school, in their future careers, and in relationships, and to thrive into adulthood.

YW3CA’s Youth Empowerment Program works with youth—and their families—to help them make the healthy choices that will follow them throughout their lives. What began as simple nutrition and fitness education for girls, Youth Empowerment Program has grown to include enrichment, leadership, and empowerment for girls, interactive cooking classes for families, and fitness for preschool children.

Summer Camps

C2 Camp is comprised of multiple local youth service providers and is lead by Tri-County Community Network. The camp is designed in cooperation with Pottstown School District to serve students in 5th-8th grade.

For six weeks, students get learn, have fun, and grow through activities such as tennis, gardening, health and wellness, cooking, financial management, achievement and leadership, art and reading!

YW3CA’s Youth Empowerment Program team loves participating in the camp. Each class, they begin with social emotional learning activities which emphasize the benefits of pausing to prepare for the upcoming activities, helping everyone get into the mindset to learn.

Our Youth Empowerment Program Team comes every Wednesday to camp to offer fabulous workshops and games for every girl attending camp. For 4 weeks this summer, Miss Kelly, Miss Kelly, and Miss Kristie hosted awesome discussions, engaging activities, and more!

Each program week has an empowering theme. These themes include kindness, environmentalism, inclusion, and diversity.

On top of fun exercises and discussion, Miss Kristie and Miss Kelly bring necklaces and charms that each girl gets to decorate. The girls get to make and create their own charms individually based on the themes that are taught each week.

Our Youth Empowerment Team intertwines the weekly themes with mindfulness movement and creative expression. Through weekly yoga sessions and creative arts activities, the girls in the camp learn healthy habits for both the body and the mind.

Through creative expression in both the written word, arts, and mindfulness movement, the Youth Empowerment Program Team exhibits an integral approach to self-care that allows each participant to lean into life. Helping girls with integrity, mindfulness, and gratitude, has helped enforce the Youth Empowerment Program’s mantra: We must Pause, and Breathe, in order to Achieve.
