Distinguished Young Women is proud to have the support of over 17,000 volunteers throughout the country. These individuals are the heart and soul of our program, and the ones who "make it happen." Their dedication and loyalty allow us to fulfill our mission. There are no words to express our appreciation to all the people who give their time, energy, and love to help us make a difference for young women.
More than 350 state and local programs can be found across the country. Each of these programs is run by a dedicated group of volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure that the young women in their communities enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience through the Distinguished Young Women program.
