***A message from YWTF’s Volunteer Coordinator, Shannon Lynberg and YWTF’s Founder, Alison Stein
Dear YWTF Members,
It’s incredible to think about the fact that YWTF started over six years ago, with a national meet-up that brought together over 100 younger women from 42 states. Our goal was, and has always been, to make YWTF an all-volunteer, self-sustaining nation-wide movement, fueled by the energy and enthusiasm of younger women nationwide.
Our goal was to make YWTF a “second home” for busy younger women—somewhere they can turn to that is outside their workplaces and their families, to gain a sense of community and empowerment. We have accomplished that goal. Today, YWTF has grown to over 5,000 members nationwide, with eight chapters across the country.
Nationally, YWTF has led projects addressing sexual assault on college campuses, work-life balance issues, and has sponsored a national fellowship program that helps support young women activists, entrepreneurs, and thinkers. If you have any questions about your current chapter, or if you are interested in starting a new chapter, please contact Shannon Lynberg, Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about YWTF generally, please contact Shannon or Alison Stein, YWTF’s Founder, at email@example.com.
We look forward to continuing to build a movement with you. We thank you for your commitment to building the next generation of women leaders.
With gratitude, Shannon & Alison
