Who We Are
We meet young folks where they’re at.
On the streets, in jails and detention centers, and in the neighborhoods and communities where we live.
For more than 30 years, Young Women’s Freedom Center has provided support, mentorship, training, employment, and advocacy to young women and trans youth of all genders in California who have grown up in poverty, experienced the juvenile legal and foster care systems, have had to survive living and working on the streets, and who have experienced significant violence in their lives.
To build the power and leadership of directly impacted young people and inspire them to create positive change in their lives and communities.
We meet young people where they’re at: on the streets, in jails and detention centers, and in the neighborhoods and communities where we live.
Together, we build our personal and collective power, heal from trauma, advocate on behalf of ourselves and each other, and gain access to education and work to transform the conditions, systems, and policies that lead to intergenerational cycles of violence, incarceration, and poverty.
A world in which all young women and trans youth of all genders have the support they need to recognize and end all forms of oppression, to heal, and to live self-determined lives.
