To YWCP's Amazing Administrators, Faculty and Staff,

Thank you for supporting the YWCP Foundation's 4th Annual "Cool Women/Hot Jobs" Career Day. Especially a BIG thank you to Principal Wilson for creating a special schedule for the day that allowed our 9th and 10th graders to participate.

This year, we had more than 40 women from a variety of careers and fields sharing their personal and professional journeys with our students. The passion, encouragement, and wisdom that the women shared with our students has hopefully left an imprint on their hearts, and helped open their eyes to the infinite career possibilities that await them. Keynote speaker Darci Lane-Williams' story of overcoming incredible challenges in her life can serve as a talking point with our girls to teach them resilience and grit.

But we couldn't do it without you - the teachers and staff of YWCP - who helped as moderators and helpers. We hope you enjoyed this experience. Please take 2 minutes to fill out this short Evaluation Form to help us better prepare for next year's event. We appreciate your feedback!

About YWCP

YWCP Charter School is Rochester's 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 450 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.
