Women’s Leadership and Economic Freedom Program

Women’s Leadership/Economic Freedom Program aims to strengthen and encourage women’s natural ways of leading and entrepreneurial ability.

We implement culturally based curricula for youth in Northern New Mexico. The A’Gin Healthy Sexuality & Body Sovereignty Project addresses body sovereignty and personal empowerment for all stages of life. We also developed the Reimagine Masculinity: Braided Engaging Young Men & Boys Curriculum. These projects, along with our youth council, serve as prevention strategies to support young people to make healthy decisions and prevent gender-based violence.


Program Goals


TWU has offered retreats, classes and support groups for young people. The program has helped Tewa women, many of them artists, to receive training and classes to further their own business goals. TWU’s involvement with U.S. Women Connect and other national networks activities has opened an avenue for influencing federal policy change on economic issues for women and low income people
