WCG is a proud sponsor of 6 Young Leaders through Women Deliver’s Young Leaders Program. The Young Leaders Program trains, elevates, and empowers youth advocates to catalyze action for gender equality, including the sexual and reproductive health and rights of girls, women, and young people. The program provides youth advocates with the training and resources necessary to be meaningfully engaged, extend their influence, and actively shape the programs and policies that affect their lives. WCG sponsorship will include traveling to and attending the Women Deliver 2019 Conference in Vancouver, Canada, as well as participation in the Young Leader Digital University, Speakers Bureau, and opportunities to collaborate with WCG to educate and empower women and girls about sexual and reproductive health.
“WCG is thrilled to collaborate with these committed and passionate sexual and reproductive health advocates,” said WCG Executive Director, Shannon Bledsoe. “They are all making a significant impact in their communities, and we look forward to building upon their excellent work to reach more young people with positive messages about sexual health.”
