Kudos to the young people who recently completed the YW Youth work training program! Through the program, participants learned what was needed to be their ‘best self’ in any work environment, and earned experience and credentials through paid work training and experience.
The Young Women’s Initiative is pleased to present a report identifying key solutions to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on young women of color or with disabilities and LGBTQ+ youth, all of whom are likely to be disproportionately impacted by this health crisis.
Increasingly, cities across the country are recognizing that racism is a public health crisis. Covid-19 has accelerated the need to address this crisis and now it’s time to ask: what safety nets do we need in place to protect those disproportionally impacted?
Join Anika Bowie, Vice President, Minneapolis NAACP, Nick Harper, Esq., Civic Engagement Director, League of Women Voters Minnesota and Gaye Adams Massey, CEO YWCA St. Paul, as they initiate a timely conversation around the role racism plays in voting and voter suppression.
We are proud to roll out Until Justice Just Is, an initiative designed to bring national attention and awareness to the systemic and institutional racism that plagues our nation, and to center the justice-oriented work that YWCA does every day.
2020 has elicited anger, rage, grief, and sadness. In the midst of such tumultuous times, it’s important to ensure we practice self-care. Self-care is different for everyone, but to be successful at it, you must be intentional about setting time aside for it. What are you doing to take care of yourself?
