Young Women

The Young Women organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provides instruction, encouragement and support in living the gospel of Jesus Christ for teenage female Church members ages 12 through 17. Its purpose is to help young women build their faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, understand their identities as daughters of God, obey God’s commandments and feel and recognize His guidance in their lives.

The organization promotes the growth and development of each young woman through Sunday instruction, weekday activities and a goal-setting and achievement program called Personal Progress.
