The U.S. Embassy in Manama would like to announce the Women2Women International Leadership Program (W2W 2017) sponsored by Empower Peace. W2W is an opportunity for young women ages 15-19 to participate in an educational cultural exchange in Boston, Massachusetts, USA July 23 – August 1, 2017. W2W 2017 will provide participants with the opportunity to learn, network and acquire leadership skills that will empower them to make a difference in their respective communities and countries. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet and develop friendships with their peers from around the world.
The Women2Women – America 2017 conference will focus on how you can “Claim Your Seat at the Table” and empower other young women to do the same. You will have the opportunity to learn about the current status of women and girls around the world, as well as the social and economic progress that is possible when women and girls have the opportunity to participate fully in every aspect of society. You will meet with leading figures tackling these challenges on an international scale, and develop your leadership skills so you can make a difference. Perhaps most importantly, you will be joining a lifelong, global network of young women who support each other and work together to contribute to positive change around the world.
Please submit the application to ManamaPAO@state.gov by Sunday, May 14, 2017 at 8:00PM.
