Attending the Woodhull Institute for Young Women was life changing. I was in an environment with like-minded, inspirational women who helped me realize my potential has no limits. I gained valuable friendships and met remarkable leaders. I recommend Woodhull to any women looking to gain confidence, a support network and leadership skills.

I came to the retreat doubting if I would be able to make my dreams a reality. Now I am fully confident that I can achieve them and much more!

I would make the retreats longer so that I could soak up more of the positive influence and useful information I received over the weekend.

This was by far the most significant and impactful venture in which I’ve participated. I learned so much that was relevant to my everyday life. I feel a lot more motivated to advocate for myself, my voice, my professional aspirations. I feel unapologetic for what I have endured and what I want to achieve. Thank you Woodhull for forcing me to get out of the rut I was in and make a change that was so desperately needed!

I receive a lot of positive "food for the soul" by reading their inspirational newsletter every week. I attended a workshop they sponsored in NYC and the room was packed.Before the workshop started I listened to fellow participants talk about previsous Woodhull retreats and I got to meet the ED and other staff and it just is such a great organization - a warm community that I hope to become a part of.

The Woodhull Institute offers affordable training, primarily to young women, that focuses on the tenets of ethical leadership, from the art of negotiation to financial responsibility to accountability as a leader. Retreat weekends provide women with an opportunity to take a deeper look at their lives and careers through a series of facilitated exercises in a supportive environment.

I attended the Master Class Retreat for Women Writers and I enjoyed every minute of the experience. It was such a safe, nurturing environment. I especially enjoyed the camaraderie with the other women as we sat around the fire after hours and talked or sat at the table eating and discussing life. I was surprised by the eclectic mix of writers, so different from the MFA experience, but I felt that having such a diverse group with so many diverse goals broadened my experience and allowed for more creative learning between the participants. I also truly enjoyed meeting all of the mentors, and having the opportunity for individual sessions to discuss individual goals and individual challenges. I think everyone needs to go on a Woodhull Retreat! Seriously! To enjoy such a positive, affirmative experience in which we are all so well cared for and so deliciously fed is such a treat. Writing is solitary labor and understanding how to get your work out there can seem so daunting at times. This is why I think Woodhull is all the more important. It is really difficult being a woman writer and finding mentors and a supportive environment in which to share your work. So I was especially happy to learn that maintaining a relatioship with Woodhull is encouraged and I intend to take advantage of that in every way possible.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in instrinsic ways. After the retreat, I am now able to better focus an essay I have been working on for years but which had still eluded me a little. The experience was so inspiring. I also received lots of concrete advise from the mentoring writers that I think I will experience the results of this organization for years to come in all kinds of positive ways I can't fully foresee yet.

Offer full scholarships so I can attend more retreats.

Woodhull's Young Women's Retreat was a wonderful experience! I was able to overcome many personal challenges during the leadership training, and since the atmosphere was so supportive, I came out of this experience feeling much more confident in myself. The other women on the retreat were incredibly inspiring, as were the faculty that lead the retreat. Overall, this was an invaluable experience - I would highly recommend it to anyone interested.

The Woodhull Institute is a place where women can share their dreams, hopes, and concerns for the future, while learning the skills needed to overcome doubt and empower themselves and others. The Young Women's Ethical Leadership Training provided a safe space for me to identify personal and societal obstacles to achieving my goals. Through informative and engaging workshops, I was able to hone in on not only what holds me back, but what will help move me forward in my life. The best part of all was being surrounded by strong, intelligent and truly inspiring women who were all dealing with or have dealt with some of the issues I face, creating an atmosphere of positivity and excitement I was missing in my personal network. I am so grateful for my experience at Woodhull and have recommended it to all of my female friends and family.

Woodhull offers the chance of a life time pairing leadership training with ethics: a combination not often explored. The trainings are unique and the support continues after the weekend ends. I recommend this organization to women frequently because of how it changed my life. I feel more in control of my life, particularly my business transactions.

Woodhull Institute is safe, nurturing and encouraging environment. You truly do feel supported and that helps open up the door to your potential and motivates you to pursue. It would be much harder to embark on pushing the envelope of your comfort zone without this feeling of well-being. Furthermore the awareness that your dealings with Woodhull do not end with the end of your retreat, strengthens this sense of security. The work Woodhull is doing in their outreach and empowerment of women is fantastic, particularly because of how personal and truly intimate Woodhull feels, although they are a decently sized organization. They truly do open your eyes to your inner potential, help you channel it into your life, and make you aware that you can control the outcomes in your life. It helps to know that you are supported one hundred percent through this process. Everything about Woodhull makes it a wonderful enterprise particularly for college women who truly do need the kind of support that the organization has to offer. Life is what you make it especially when you are strengthened by the network of successful women who stand behind you.
