MissionChanging Public Education and Changing Lives through The Young Women's Leadership Schools & the co-ed CollegeBound Initiative.

About: In 1996, Ann and Andrew Tisch partnered with the New York City Board of Education to open The Young Women's Leadership School of East Harlem - the first public all-girls school to open in the United States in 30 years. Their vision was to provide economically disadvantaged girls with a high-quality college preparatory education modeled upon the finest private schools. We now have a network of five high-performing TYWLS public schools in New York City, serving more than 2,200 students. The success of our girls' schools has inspired the opening of dozens of single-sex schools nationwide, including affiliates in Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, and Texas. Our schools continue to be a model for single-gender public schools across the country. In 1998, Young Women's Leadership Network, a not-for-profit organization, was created to make our programming available to more students. YWLN supports two programs that provide college readiness and college access to low-income public school students: The Young Women's Leadership Schools (TYWLS) and CollegeBound Initiative (CBI).
