Upstanders – Virtual Meeting

YWCA Youth Leadership Council

  • Students Grade 7 – 12
  • Last Thursday of Every Month
  • 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM

An  upstander is someone who recognizes when something is wrong and acts to make it right. Being an upstander is being a hero: We are standing up for what is right and doing our best to help support and protect our community. In many ways, this is another word for being socially responsible.

The goal of this Council is to fulfill the mission of YWCA Hanover… Eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Through UPSTANDERS Youth Leadership Council we seek to identify the needs of our community and schools; recognize the positive actions that occur in our community and develop initiatives to encourage diversity and inclusion.

Upstanders Leadership Council is open to any individual in grades 7 – 12 who has an interest in creating positive change in our community. The supervisory board is comprised of YWCA Hanover staff in partnership with area school district teachers, administrators, and volunteers.
