Today’s young women are actively contemplating current and future leadership in the church. Some are looking for current opportunities to represent young women voices at various levels of the church. Many are prayerfully discerning their call to ordained or lay ministry. Others simply want to learn more about the church. Although there are many common issues faced by all young women of our church, their needs vary depending on the call they are contemplating. We seek to understand these needs and provide helpful resources.

Young Women’s Leadership Development is a national ministry of the Presbyterian Mission Agency operating within the Women's Leadership Development & Justice ministry offices.. The office of Young Women’s Leadership Development provides resources to young adult women (ages 18-35) who are considering leadership opportunities in the church.

  • We support national networks that target specific groups of young adult women. Currently there are two national networks supported by the office. National Network of Presbyterian College Women (NNPCW) serves college age women (ages 18-25). Racial Ethnic Young Women Together (REYWT) serves racial ethnic women between the ages of 18 and 35.
  • We can provide young women with opportunities to serve in various leadership positions at a national level. Our office partners with other PC(USA) agencies to increase young women’s voice and representation in the church.
  • We organize national and regional events that offer young women leadership training and opportunities for networking with peers and mentors.
  • We seek to globalize leadership development of young women by partnering with ecumenical agencies.

Commission on the Status of Women attendee shares her hopes for upcoming event

“Recently five women in my community were murdered by their husbands or boyfriends. That’s unacceptable. I hope my time in New York City at the Commission will give me the tools and resources that I need to be an advocate for the women and girls in my community.” Florence Vargas is one of 22 women who will travel to New York City in a few weeks as part of a Presbyterian Women delegation attending the 59th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women.  The focus of this year’s Commission will be on the 20thanniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, including current challenges that affect its implementation and the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of women.
