Our Mission In Action
YWCA’s strategic framework is the culmination of consultation and exploration with YWCAs across the country and reflects our legacy as a pioneering organization that squarely confronts social justice issues to make lasting, meaningful change. The focus areas below guide our organization’s collective efforts at the national and local levels, with each YWCA association tailoring its approach to meet their community’s needs.
YWCA focuses our mission-driven work on these areas to improve the lives of girls and women:
Racial Justice and Civil Rights
Increasing protection and equal opportunity for people of color.
Empowerment and Economic Advancement
Increasing economic opportunities for women and girls of color.
Health and Safety
Improving the health and safety of women and girls of color.
