Event description
Women of Courage is an event celebrating the strength and resilience of women.

About this Event

This deeply healing evening will honor women of significant accomplishment who we see as role models to provide inspiration for the young ladies from communities that Youth Mentoring Connection serves These young ladies are being celebrated for having courageously faced their wounds (often emotional, sexual or physical trauma) and are ready to take back their power and claim their gifts.

Sanaa Lathan invites you to join her at YMC's, Women of Courage fundraiser. A special event empowering women who have gone from surviving to thriving! As part of YMC's work we began to understand the need for our youth to have the experience of Initiation as part of their process into adulthood. So, for the past 12 years we have been taking 50 boys and 50 girls up to the mountains of Big Bear where they create a safe environment for each other so that they can begin to face their traumas and wounds inflicted upon them. This is the beginning of the healing that frees them of the weight of secrecy. Our estimation is that approximately 85% of the young women that are a part of our programs have been traumatized or abused in some way.
