Based on a well-established curriculum developed at the University of Virginia, the Halford Young Women Leaders’ Program (HYWLP) connects motivated middle school girls from local under-resourced communities and Castilleja Upper School students through a year-long mentoring curriculum. Throughout the academic year, the high school and middle school big and little “sisters” meet weekly on Saturday to support one another in the development of leadership skills.

If you are interested in becoming a”big sister,” please contact Ms. Deras in the ACE Center and she will let you know how to get involved.
