Biographical / Historical

The Young Women Leaders Program (YWLP) was founded in 1997 by Edith "Winx" Lawrence and Kim Roberts who recognized that adolescence is a hard time for girls - and their families. The founders believed that, with the support of faculty experienced in education and human development, college women and middle school girls could support and encourage each other in meaningful and memorable ways. YWLP is a joint program of the Curry School of Education and the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women's Center. See:
