Working on Womanhood

The Youth Guidance Working On Womanhood (WOW) program believes in the potential of every girl. In 2011, WOW was designed to support the social-emotional development of 7th-12th grade girls and by 2019, WOW has expanded to serve more than 1,900 girls across 31 Chicagoland public schools.

As WOW grows, Youth Guidance remains committed to community-based, research practices and programming that consistently reflects and responds to the needs of our City.
