YW Boston’s F.Y.R.E. Initiative (Fierce Youth Reigniting Excellence) is excited to invite you to our first ever F.Y.R.E. Symposium titled “Igniting Your FYRE Within: Sharing our experiences of COVID-19.” Join our 2021 cohort of igniters as they reflect and share their learnings with the Greater Boston community. 

During our F.Y.R.E. Initiative leadership and empowerment program, middle school girls around Greater Boston explore social justice education, positive identity development, healthy relationships, and civic engagement. As part of the program, participants create a community action project. During the symposium, attendees will participate in a community action project and have the opportunity to engage with other youth leaders from across Greater Boston.

The event will include interactive elements, intergenerational activities, and several guest appearances including a keynote from Vice President of Apparel at Reebok, Portia Blunt, and remarks from Representative Liz Miranda and Commissioner Shaitia Spurrell of the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear how young girls are changing Boston and making an impact in their communities!
