Do you want to become connected to other women like you and professionals who can inspire and motivate you to learn about yourself and your potential?


Our programme, next launching in February 2023, won't just support you to define where you want to get in life but also encourage you to prioritise your overall health and well-being. You could be awarded a place worth £5000 and start accessing a combination of online workshops, guest talks, weekly mentoring, therapy and wellbeing activities to empower you to see beyond the limits in your life and build your confidence, networks and vision. 
We've worked with almost 400 women over the last 10 years. Here's what some of them had to say about their transformational YMI journeys:



Who are we looking for?

We know from our own experiences that not everyone is born into luck, but we also know that with the right support and encouragement you can really get what you want and deserve in life. If you think this sounds like you and you're aged between 18-30, currently unemployed or underemployed and living in London - we'd love to talk!

Fill out the short form below and one of our team will call you for a relaxed, warm conversation about where you're at in life, what you want to achieve and what you'd need from us. 

Are you looking to refer someone to us?

We're always keen to build referral partnerships with other organisations. If you work with a woman who could benefit from our programme, you can refer them to our team by emailing
