Older Girl Programs

YWE

YWE programs are unique experiences exclusively for high school girls, who are determined and driven to be AMAZING. Immerse yourself in workshops and activities that will heighten your self-exploration and help you gain more courage and confidence. Become a leader in your home, school or community – YWE will get you there!

YWEAchieve – Young Women Entrepreneurs Achieve

During this three-day camp, girls will take leadership, college prep, finance, and non-profit management classes from UNO faculty. They will also have the opportunity to meet with local business owners. Girls will end the camp by putting their newfound knowledge and skills to the test in a business challenge.

YWECamp – Young Women Executives Camp

Visit camp and connect with incredible women mentors. You’ll hear their inspiring stories around the campfire and learn how their choices have impacted their lives and contributed to their success. In addition to powerful one-on-one sessions with the women mentors, you’ll also connect with other high school girls and their mentors by participating together in camp activities like swimming, archery and games.

YWE3Lead – Young Women Engage, Empower, Educate and Lead

High school girls from across the state will come together to network with one another, learn from and interact with female leaders from various industries, and participate in a community service project. Throughout the day, girls will learn to harness their inner-awesome to achieve great things and make their dreams come true!

Counselor-in-Training

Take a Program Aide into the great outdoors and you’ve got a Counselor-in-Training! With so many camps and programs across the state, you will become one with nature and make gobs of friends…some of the eight-legged variety. If you love being outside and helping make things run smoothly, we want you!
