Opportunities for Girls to Thrive and Learn

On March 29th, YWCA Girl Imani Griffin traveled to Washington, D.C., along with YWCA Youth Advisor Stacey Johnson, to participate in a policy briefing on Capitol Hill that focused on the challenges girls face today and the programs that empower them. Imani, 1 of 3 girls to speak before the audience of over 75 Congressional staffers, shared how YWCA Delaware​ has enriched her life during her formative high school years and spoke to the issue of “How Congress Can Create Opportunities for Girls to Thrive and Learn.”

We are so proud of this smart, confident young woman who represented herself, YWCA & Newark High School so remarkably well!


YWCA Delaware was delighted to partner with YWCA USA and provide Imani with the opportunity to present at this briefing hosted by Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), Representative Susan Brooks (R-IN), Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ), YWCA USA, Girl Scouts of the USA and Girls Inc.
