You Can Make a Difference

Student Leadership Network supports life-changing programs that empower youth from low-income communities to break the cycle of poverty through education, including The Young Women’s Leadership Schools (TYWLS), a high performing network of all-girls public secondary schools, and CollegeBound Initiative (CBI), a comprehensive college access program for young women and men. Currently, we impact more than 17,000 students in 32 schools in district public schools in New York City. Since 2001, Student Leadership Network has helped more than 15,000 students enroll in college and has helped to generate more than $560 million in financial aid to enable them to persist there.
