A Leadership Program for Young Women in Grades 9-12
What is Yumaprep?
YumaPrep brings new meaning to professional development for young women.
Leading well is more than acquiring a set of skills, approaches or learning business techniques. Authentic leadership involves developing one’s own character and growing in virtue.
Every high school girl interested becoming a force for positive change should ask herself:
What does it mean to be a competent professional and serve family and society?
How can I become a leader and a wise contributor?
YumaPrep offers monthly professional and cultural seminars, discussion forums and individual mentoring to girls who want to improve our world.
True leadership is grounded in the strength of virtue. The mentoring opportunity for YumaPrep attendees focuses on virtue training in leadership for each grade level as follows:
