Mission

The YWCA of the City of New York (YW-NYC) is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Established in 1858, the YW-NYC is one of the nation’s oldest nonprofit organizations committed to the personal and social development of women, their families, and their communities. In honor of this history, and in service of our mission, the YW-NYC currently provides leadership and advocacy training for young women through our Girls Initiatives and Out-of-School Time (OST) programs for elementary and middle school students in culturally diverse communities in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
