Bertha Sadler Means Young Women's Leadership Academy

Student Clubs and Organizations

Student Clubs and Organizations are all over campus, and range in size, interest, commitment level, and time.  Any student at Bertha Sadler Means YWLA can start a club or organization!  All you need is a few interested students to be members, and a faculty or staff member to be the group's host.  Here's a sampling of just some of the student clubs and organizations currently available on campus: 

Tech Girls is a weekly after-school Girl Scout troop for middle school girls designed to increase awareness of the importance of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) in their education, careers and world. Tech Girls explore different aspects of STEM and have 'fun with a purpose' for inspiration and the celebration of scientific discovery in their lives.

Boneshaker Project is a local Austin 501(c)3, whose mission is to inspire kids to lead healthy, active lifestyles. Bertha Sadler Means YWLA welcomed the Boneshaker Project Run Club to its campus in 2016. Meeting twice a week, students practice fitness drills, running techniques, and train for local races. The highlight of last year's season was when the girls ran the Cap10K and the Spartan Races. The program encourages kids to 'do what moves you', feel confident and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Boneshaker's supporters generously sponsor Sadler Means YWLA, so that the girls can participate at no cost to them.

Culture Club teaches our young ladies about etiquette while exposing them to many forms of performance art they might not have the opportunity to experience.  In years past we have attended dress rehearsals of the Austin Opera.  This school year we are expanding our focus and adding additional performances to include ballet and musicals!

Business Professionals of America (BPA) is the premier Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for students pursuing careers in business management, office administration, information technology and other related career fields. The Mission of Business Professionals of America is to contribute to the preparation of global professionals through the advancement of leadership, citizenship, academic, and technological skills. 'Today's students. Tomorrow's business professionals.'
