What We Do
WOMEN provides education and mentorship to at-risk youth and their families to empower them to make positive life choices that maximize their potential. Our programs serve the community of Palmdale and Lancaster. Since 2021, we have worked with over 500 young women to build life skills, self-awareness, and courage through our programs, including Beautiful Black Butterflies, anger management classes, job readiness programs, and gang prevention/intervention initiatives.

Anger Management Classes
Classes for youth ages 15-24 and all genders are welcome. We meet 2 times per week for six consecutive weeks. The curriculum is based on the SAMHSA training manual which reviews Anger Management treatment, events and cues, anger control plans, cognitive restructuring, anger within the family, and more.
W.O.M.E.N. 's Beautiful Black Butterflies Program serves young women who want to leave behind gang life, who may be in foster care or who may be involved with the Probation Department. This program is a 16 week long program where young women learn life skills including hygiene, coping skills and behaviors, job placement, and how to search for healthy relationships.
Domestic Violence Survivors
Classes for youth and young adults affected by domestic violence, ages 15- 24. This program teaches youth about what domestic violence is, examples of what domestic violence looks like in different settings, the impact of domestic violence on children & families, and shares resources available as well as coping and life skills related to domestic violence. We meet 2 times per week for six consecutive weeks.
