Spotlight: Young Women's Leadership Society (YWLS)
The Young Women’s Leadership Society at ChiTech is focused on introducing ChiTech’s young women to strong, successful females, and honing their leadership skills. The club examines stereotypes, explores the development of healthy relationships, and fosters the skills necessary for the cultivation of valuable professional networks.
The ChiTech Experience is more than just taking tests! Community partnerships, clubs, and sports all play a part. Our extra-curricular activities are designed to allow students to interact socially who share similar interests, talents, and goals. ChiTech offers diverse programs from music, sports, arts and culture to gardening and more. We encourage you to get involved and have fun!
