Last Wednesday at Mothers for Justice and Equality, we witnessed a beautiful ceremony, one that will be remembered for time to come. The 2017 You Matter Graduation ceremony was heartfelt, inspiring and moving, to say the least. 11 women came into the You Matter program seeking haven, a place where they could encompass change where they weren’t put down or judged for past mistakes, troubles, or trauma experienced. You can come into the office, ask for a flyer, speak to someone for a few minutes to see if the program is right for you. That experience does not nearly compare to being front and center to the You Matter Leadership Training Workshop.
At the You Matter Leadership Training, you gain the opportunity to listen, to reflect, to learn, to change, not only about yourself and the goals you want to accomplish but of others. To know that for a month you get to be a part of something greater than you had ever imagined. Every single woman who received a certificate for our You Matter Leadership Program has been through a transformation that we can see flourishing every day. This can be seen in the way they speak, in the goals they want to accomplish, in the people they aspire to be. We want to let these women know you matter, your voice matters, your presence on this earth matters and every one of us has the power to change, to improve ourselves to become leaders of our own lives.
