Otsego, MN – Today Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) announced his office will be accepting applications for the fifth annual Young Women Leadership Program (YWLP) for high school girls in Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District. 

The YWLP is an annual program designed to give young women the opportunity to learn from and engage with some of Minnesota's top female leaders. The program consists of three panels throughout the summer for young women entering 9th through 12th grade. Each panel is an open round table discussion with the other participants and women professionals from various fields, where they will share their insights, guidance, and stories. 

“I am proud to announce the continuation of the Young Women Leadership Program,” said Emmer. “I launched this program to provide the opportunity for young Minnesotans to learn from outstanding female mentors and I look forward to meeting the impressive young women who will participate this summer!" 

Further details on this program, including how to apply can be found on Congressman Emmer’s website. Applications will be accepted through May 29
