Volunteers needed for DYW

Distinguished Young Women

Founded in 1958, Distinguished Young Women (DYW) is a national program that inspires high school girls to develop their full, individual potential. Distinguished Young Women strives to give every young woman the opportunity to further her education and prepare for a successful future. Those wishing to make an impact on young women in Clinton may volunteer by visiting to find programs.


Distinguished Young Women is a unique program that combines the opportunity to win college scholarships with Life Skills training. Through the Life Skills program, participants learn interviewing, public speaking, self-confidence building and more. They also take part in a “Be Your Best Self” workshop, learning tools they need for success, such as setting goals, being responsible and making healthy lifestyle choices. The program takes place in all fifty states and Washington, D.C. All participants have college scholarships available to them just for participating.
