The Young Women's Empowerment Project

The mission of the Young Women’s Empowerment Project is to offer safe, respectful, free-of-judgment spaces for girls and young women impacted by the sex trade and street economies to recognize their goals, dreams and desires.

The Young Women’s Empowerment Project is a community based youth lead project that was founded in 2001 by a radical feminst and harm reduction based collective of women and girls involved in the sex trade and street economy and our allies.

We were created by women and girls who believe that any girl can be empowered and that all girls are priceless, creative, and smart and can be leaders in their communities.

We offer girls involved in the sex trade and street economy ages 12-23 non-judgmental support, harm reduction information and resources and we even have job opportunities and paid volunteer positions.

We are not a social service agency.

That means that we don’t do “Intakes” or find people housing, or take people to court, etc.

If a girl needs something we can’t provide, we make a referral to someone we trust who we think can help out. We never share information or ask for identification. In fact, we dont allow social workers, lawyers or law enforcement in our offices!

Everything that we do is free of cost to girls.

Our mission is to offer safe, respectful, free of judgment spaces for girls and young women impacted by the sex trade and street economies to recognize and develop their goals, dreams and desires. This work is personal to us because it is about our lives.
