Youth Leadership Program

It was inspiring to be among powerful women who offer sustainable solutions to their communities and to the world. As a student, having the opportunity to listen to their stories and network with women in the industry is invaluable.
— Angela Vincent, Antioch University

The Youth Leadership Program includes a scholarship program to recruit students (high school and college) to attend the Women In Green Forum, a mentorship program that connects later stage professionals with students for career counseling sessions and the presentation of the 2016 Youth Trailblazer Award during the luncheon at the Forum. 

If you are a full-time student and interested in attending the Women In Green Forum, please complete a Youth Leadership Program Scholarship Application and submit your completed application by August 1, 2016.

2014:    Esperanza Garcia - Youth UN Delegate and Climate Change Leader

Students often need the inspiration of others to keep going— WIGF was exactly that for me.
— Savannah Gardner, University of California, Los Angeles 
I highly recommend that students attend this event because it is not only a showcase for what women are doing in the world, but how they are using their careers for social change.
