Celebrate Women's History Month

with the students of Young Women's College Prep!

YWCP Honors Women in History

The students of YWCP are celebrating Women's History Month by putting on a Women in History Expo on Thursday, March 26th. Each student will present a biography of an important woman in history and explain why she believes this woman should replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

We are seeking at least 20 women from the community to join us for this expo to provide an audience for our students' presentations, and to offer your feedback on their projects. We are asking for just an hour of your time to help our students get on the road to college!

Here are the times that are available:

  • 9:15-10:15am
  • 10:30-11:30am
  • 1:00-2:00pm
  • 2:30-3:30pm

If you are available, please email Jacquie Isaacs at jisaacs@youngwomenscollegeprep.org and let her know your preferred time slot.

Thank you so much for your participation!
