PYO on center stage at LUEWWD XIV on Oct 15th

LUEWWD

LUEWWD stands for League of Upper Extremity Wrestling Women of Durham. LUEWWD strives to improve opportunities for women and girls through hosting creative community-based women’s arm wrestling competitions to raise funds for organizations supporting women and girls in Durham.

PYO Women

PYO exists to help Durham youth reach their educational and vocational potential through academic support, workforce training, mentoring and opportunities to connect with leadership and service learning.

PYO Mom DaughterProceeds from LUEWWD XIV will help PYO expand one of its core programs Girls Empowerment Project: cultural programming, leadership development opportunities and scholarships for girls. In addition to serving 65% girls, 62% of their families are led by single mothers. Often the involvement of one girl in the program leads to the involvement of a younger sibling or female cousins. PYO’s programming has a multigenerational impact on poverty and increases opportunity to level the playing field for many girls in Durham. YEAH!
