New Women New Yorkers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization empowering young women immigrants from underserved communities in New York City.
Through our educational programs we provide young women immigrants from underserved communities in New York City with the knowledge, skills, and support they need to recognize and develop their potential, pursue better educational and professional opportunities, and become role-models and agents of change in and for their communities.
Creating a safe space and support network for young women immigrants is an additional objective. With our blog we offer them with a platform to tell their stories and express their voice – an empowering experience for many, who remain silenced in their communities.
We follow a very collaborative approach, engaging and forging partnerships with existing organizations and key stakeholders in the community to run our programs and fill in the gaps.
