Will You Join Us Again in 2016?

We had such a great time last year, we're doing it again!

Please join us for the 2nd Annual "College Bound in Style" Fashion Show and Shopping Extravaganza to benefit the students of Young Women's College Prep Charter School.

Just like last year, this event will give attendees the chance to shop at 20+ local vendors and attend a fashion show organized by Joan Lincoln, owner of Panache Vintage & Finer Consignments, featuring numerous local businesses. In fact, you can be on the runway! Click here for vendor and sponsorship levels, including Runway Sponsor!

Since you were one of our vendors last year, you get the first chance to sign on for this year's event before we open it up to the public next week.

All proceeds will once again provide summer scholarships for the students that attend Young Women's College Prep Charter School. Last year's Fashion Show had more than 140 attendees and raised nearly $7,000 in scholarships for students - and we hope to double those numbers this year!

Thank you for your consideration.

Your Participation Makes a Difference!

9th Grader Shardae C. was one of 15 lucky girls to receive a scholarship last summer thanks to the funds raised through the Fashion Show. Shardae received a $300 scholarship to attend the University of Rochester's Women's Elite Basketball Camp. As a result, she not only improved her basketball skills, but she got the chance to experience a college campus and meet coaches and players from the U of R, helping her to envision herself on a college campus in just three years!

Other students attended RIT's Smash Math Camp, Mountain High Adventure Camp, Dance Camp at Hochstein School, and the Hunger Games Camp by Writers & Books. Programs like these are critical to helping our students continue to learn and grow over the summer months, and creating an impressive college application. This would not have been possible without your support!

About YWCP

YWCP Charter School is Rochester's first and only all-girls public school. It opened its doors in August 2012 to its first class of students, and will grow over the next few years to serve 500 students in grades 7-12. YWCP is an affiliate of the Young Women's Leadership Network, which supports five highly successful single-gender schools in NYC and 11 affiliates across the country.

The mission of the YWCP Foundation is to break the cycle of poverty for young urban girls by increasing their economic self-sufficiency through improved leadership skills, career awareness, college readiness, and college access. To accomplish this, YWCP Inc. creates, implements, and supports innovative programs that educate the whole girl - academically, socially, and emotionally.
