Young Women’s Leadership Corps Summer Institute Teaches Girls from Greater Hartford the Art of Networking

YWCA Hartford Region’s Young Women’s Leadership Corps (YWLC) Summer Institute, is an extension of its school-based leadership program for girls. For the past eight years, YWCA Hartford Region and Aetna, a CVS Health Company, have partnered to inspire middle and high school aged girls from Greater Hartford. Programming for this intensive, five- week summertime experience included workshops focused on financial literacy and health and wellness, along with field trips, STEM activities, community service projects, career exploration sessions, and time for mindfulness and self exploration. The speed networking event gave the girls the chance to showcase their newly honed self-introduction and interview skills to Hartford area professionals who volunteered to participate in the event. Several YWLC program graduates have gone on to secure internships with Aetna, a CVS Company.
