The objective of this JPC project is to establish the Young Women Leaders Program (YWLP) in southern Nigeria thus continuing the growth of the YWLP "sister sites" in global locations. Working with faculty and students at Imo State University and Owerri Girls Secondary School in Nigeria, our team will modify the University of Virginia's YWLP curriculum to better address the issues facing girls and women in Nigeria and support their development as young women leaders.
