Young Women in Harmony

Our Goal...

To teach emerging voices the skills, joy and rewards of performing and singing four-part harmony, barbershop style. We will provide tools, guides and support for activities and programs that every chapter in Region Three can use to promote four-part harmony, barbershop style in their local high schools and colleges.

Do You Have a Youth Singing Event You Would Like to Ask the Region 3 Management Team to Consider Funding?

Region 3 has available a "Proposal for Funding" form. Please note that this form is to be completed by the person requesting funding of the RMT, and the form is to be submitted to the RMT by January 1 of the fiscal year PRIOR to when the requested funds are desired. The form will help us to ensure that the region's money is being used appropriately, that the young singers involved are getting the kind of education the applicants were hoping for, and that there is evident progress so that all parties will be encouraged to participate in subsequent years. Please look the form over and be sure to submit early if you're working on a young singers' event and hope for funding. There are 3 types of forms to choose from: Word Doc, PDF, or Excel. Simply choose the form that works best for you! (NOTE: If you are using Internet Explorer and the Word or Excel documents do not open correctly for you, go to Tools in Internet Explorer and click Manage Add-Ons. Under Microsoft Corporation, enable "Office Document Cache Helper").

Remember - the deadline for submitting the request for funding is January 1 of the fiscal year PRIOR to when the requested funds are desired. Please submit your form to the Education Coordinator, Angie Williams, at

Young Women in Harmony Regional Challenge: What are YOU doing to promote the barbershop experience with young people?

It can be as easy as inviting a high school choral group to perform at a chorus rehearsal, and then singing for them. That’s all! That experience may plant a seed that could bloom later in life, when they’re finished with school and seeking an outlet for their love of singing.

NOTE: Sweet Adelines International has recently updated the YWIH Guide for Chapters, which you may download for free from our website:
