About the Young Women’s Empowerment Institute

YWEI is a mentorship program for freshmen female students attending Langston University. It is designed to prepare them for the next stages of life and career through empowerment, support, and connections. YWEI is dedicated to the advancement of young women in the workplace and committed to leadership, communication, and skill development. Initially derived from a partnership between Langston University and the Central Area of The Links, Incorporated, the program was an effort to create a mentoring program that addresses the need to empower young college women to successfully manage the collegiate landscape and graduate ready to engage the global community.

It is a one-year program that provides transformative opportunities to young women between 17-21 years of age, who are first-time, full-time entering freshmen. The program helps improve their self-esteem and equip them with a life plan. The program is a series of seminars for the participants focused on professional development, social etiquette, health. and wellness. Additionally, mentors are brought in to educate and guide these young women. The follow-up and monitoring of the progress of the participant’s life plan continue through graduation and two years post-graduation. The program is a result of her efforts along with Alice Strong Simmons’, Central Area Director of The Links, Incorporated, vision partnering with Central Area Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to work with young women attending these institutions, beginning with Langston University.
