Youth Advisory Board (YAB) participants are currently researching barriers to empowerment girls, young women & femmes face using Participatory Action Research (PAR). After choosing, designing & implementing a variety of research methods, YAB participants will analyze the data and carry out an action plan to eliminate identified barriers to empowerment. Participants hope our research & actions will support empowerment & equity in the community.

This research depends on your participation! If you identify as a girl, young woman or femme, take this survey and join our Instagram campaign #WhyIFeelEmpowered! Enter your favorite image of self empowerment to have the chance to have your image featured in a gallery showcase.

1. Follow @YWCA_OLY_PAR

2. Share your image of empowerment with #WhyIFeelEmpowered & tag @YWCA_OLY_PAR

3. Tell us in the comments how this image reveals your empowerment!

4. Contest concludes August 1st, 2017; participants must be at least 13 years old.
