This summer, Barnard's Office of Pre-College Programs and Athena partnered to host a virtual program for 120+ high school students from around the world: for the Young Women's Leadership Institute (YWLI). Through the Leadership in Action series, students worked to create e-zines on such topics as the environment, equity issues, and health and wellness, using what they learned in their core classes. This was an incredible cohort of inspiring young people and certainly a highlight of our summer!
“My favorite Athena program is the Athena Challenges. I participated in the design challenge that focused on hunger and food insecurity within college campuses, presenting a solution that my team and I came up with for on-campus hunger in two days to food experts including Chef Tom Colicchio.”

“The Athena Center empowered me to stand up for myself: whether in an interview, on the job, or in my daily interactions, the Athena Center has empowered me to feel capable, intelligent, and deserving of success.”

“The Athena Center has empowered me to take on challenges. To ask for opportunities/platforms to better myself, help the community, and to be candid about vulnerabilities in personal experiences.”
