In 2006 The Ever Forward Club started the program for young women. The young women in Mr. Branch’s class wanted something similar to what they witnessed the young men had created. The young women’s program at San Lorenzo High School went through many iterations since 2006. At one point at San Lorenzo the young men and young women met together.
In 2013-2014 school year our young women’s mentor at ARISE High School moved away and we were not prepared to recruit and hire a new mentor as a replacement. This academic year 2014 - 2015, the young women requested to have a club and they took the ownership of finding a mentor and they have been meeting. Currently a young women’s club is operating at ARISE High School in Oakland, California.
