Vital Voices Grassroots Voices Program For Young Leaders (Cohort 1) 2023

Grassroots Voices is a 7-week program that supports young women leaders who are implementing community-focused projects. We give them the training, resources, and mentorship to level up and make their vision a reality. 

Young women everywhere are engaged in exactly this kind of community-centered organizing. They identify problems and are working to solve them. Grassroots Voices is designed to amplify their work and boost their skills so they can transform their communities – and then the world.
