Young Women Leaders is a project developed with funding from the Erasmus+ program of the European Union which aims to create the first European network of young women and develop female empowerment through the involvement of 60 young girls.
With the collaboration of 4 associations in 4 European countries, the project promotes a new vision of women in Europe. The project is implemented by building the skills of young women, supporting them in awareness-raising initiatives and creating new opportunities.
The organizations involved in the Young Women Leaders project are all unique: having their experience in different fields and their focus on equally important issues, each partner brings its own contribution to the completeness of the initiative.
