Each year, the Younger Women's Task Force brings its chapters director together for an annual retreat, referred to as the Leadership Training Institute. Each institute has a theme-the theme of the 2006 Institute was Media Justice and the 2005 theme for the Institute was Political Activism. This year's theme is Younger Women and Civic Activism. The goal of this year's Leadership Institute is to engage young women leaders and collectively work to make sure our voices are heard. Our members are young mothers, professional women, and key opinion leaders in diverse communities across the United States. Because of this, the Younger Women's Task force leaders are ideally positioned to deliver motivational messages to their colleagues and peers on civic engagement and voter participation.
