Lead the Future

Leadership development workshop series for middle and high school girls hosted throughout the year

About this program


Lead the Future, a no-cost workshop series held throughout the year, focuses on leadership development for girls in middle and high school across Cumberland County. The half-day workshops are designed to equip and empower girls to be leaders in our community through character development and issue awareness. The workshops are held two to three times a year, and may explore topics such as volunteering, professionalism, personal awareness, goal setting, finances, career and trade information, and teamwork. Sessions are hosted by YWCA Carlisle staff, knowledgeable guest speakers, and expert panelists.


Our next Lead the Future workshop is scheduled for Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Lead the Future will occur in the spring on Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Lunch is provided.


Lead the Future workshops are held at YWCA Carlisle at 301 G Street, Carlisle, PA 17013.


Please register for Lead the Future’s fall workshop by Monday, September 16, 2019.
