TYWLS Bronx After-School programs

Due to the support of the Young Women’s Leadership Network and Los Padres Foundation, we are able to provide a variety of choices for your girls.   All TYWLS Bronx girls are required to participate in a minimum of one extracurricular activity every week.  It is our hope that by having an outlet with which to express themselves, the young women of TYWLS will enter college and the professional world as multi-talented, well-rounded individuals.
