Childbirth to Preschool - A Place for Parents

A Place for Parents is a space for parents, children, and the whole family.  In this relaxing yet stimulating environment, parents learn important parenting skills and children are supported in exploring, creating and being adventurous with a focus on building community.  A Place for Parents offers parent support groups, Mommy & Me classes, and Cottage Activity Time, a drop off play group that supports the parent/child separation process and the building of social skills.  In this place, families come together to play, create, learn, and make long-lasting memories.  In fall 2011, A Place for Parents opened the [email protected]

Girl Central is an individualized program for middle and high school girls providing them with the skills and tools to grow into strong, confident, and well-adjusted teenagers.  Its core components – Girls In Action Life Skills and Mentoring, MoneySmartz Financial Literacy, TECHgyrls Computer Literacy, Youth In Motion Creative Expression  – build self-esteem and confidence, heighten cultural awareness, facilitate community connections, strengthen communication skills, nurture career development, and support healthy lifestyles.  As girls gain skills, their self-confidence increases as does their motivation to succeed in life.  Girl Central is working to pilot an expansion program called, A Girl’s Voice in collaboration with a wide range of community partners.  For more information about Girl Central, please contact Veronica Sabbaghi at [email protected]([email protected]) .
 
Created in 1986 to enable girls to realize a positive sports experience – and to instill an understanding of winning, losing, and how personal motivation, dedication and team work influence outcomes – Girls’ Athletics provides a safe, healthy and supportive environment to learn and compete in basketball and volleyball.  With basketball and volleyball leagues and clinics offered year round at our own gym and the beach, we currently serve over 300 girls ages 5-14, with 40 dedicated volunteer coaches who make the program a reality.  Our basketball and volleyball programs serve as a model upon which dozens of new basketball programs at YWCAs across the country have been developed. Noticing how eager the smaller siblings of current participants were to play the game, Girls’ Athletics successfully launched Pee Wee Basketball for kids ages 5 and 6 – creating an entirely new look and feel to the game!  Further along in the life cycle, and in an effort to involve YWCA moms looking for a different way to relax and get into shape, we also launched a League, which is truly giving the game a run for its money!  For more information about Girls’ Athletics, please contact Hilton Brown at [email protected]([email protected]) .

Our Alumni Partnership and Alumni Partnership allows housing graduates to “deposit” the funds they have saved while living at the YWCA with the YWCA, and in turn, the YWCA sends them these funds on a monthly basis.  [email protected] The YWCA Junior Board and its volunteers are committed to working with the YWCA Santa Monica / Westside to raise funds for and increase awareness of YWCA programs, which impact the lives of our community's women, girls and families. We are a group of young professional women who contribute a wide range of experience and expertise, with a true passion for the mission of the YWCA. Junior Board members directly participate in program implementation, organize fundraisers, introduce new friends to the YWCA, and serve as role models for YWCA program participants. To date, our group has played an integral role in the YWCA's Girls Central program for at-risk middle and high school girls. Participation in Junior Board activities provides opportunities for leadership development and personal growth. The Junior Board and its volunteers are committed to creating a productive, respectful, empowering and encouraging environment to facilitate discussion and promote community involvement.

Designed for women of all ages who want to learn, grow and give back, as well as those looking for new opportunities to apply their expertise, The YWCA Women’s Partnership stimulates community among women with shared interests.  The four pillars of focus – personal and professional growth, volunteerism and philanthropy, civic engagement and advocacy, and health and well being – are developed through weekend retreats, classes and workshops offered at the YWCA’s Women’s Partnership Center.

YWCA’s Health & Fitness classes impact all stages of the life cycle and support the development of good physical health.  From yoga to life drawing to belly dancing to karate, the YWCA offers over 25 health and fitness classes weekly for all ages, with a focus on mature women, women, girls and children.  For cancer survivors, Encore is a highly respected program developed over 30 years ago by the YWCA of the USA and a team of medical, health, and exercise specialists.  Serving cancer survivors from all socioeconomic backgrounds, Encore enhances the recovery process through rehabilitative pool therapy, peer support, and medical/social service referral.  The YWCA continually seeks out new health and fitness classes to meet demand and to keep up with fitness trends.  Our newest classes – Zumba Gold, ZumbaAtomic for Kids, Jazzercise and Adult Acting – are just a few of the ways the YWCA is working to bring fun and fitness to women and girls in our community!  For more information about Lifelong Wellness, please contact Sharon Donaldson at [email protected]([email protected]) .
YWCA’s Stress & Mood-Busting workshops impact all stages of the life cycle and support the development of good social/emotional health, including:  the development of strong emotional health between parents and infants during the child development process, among school-aged girls transitioning through critical stages in physical and emotional development, young women addressing emotional issues that have impacted their upbringing, and women exploring new challenges in their lives as they refine their careers and seek out opportunities for personal renewal.  In partnership with Helpguide.org and USC’s School of Social Work, the YWCA will begin offering Bring Your Life into Balance toolkit, an online educational workshop that supports the building of emotional skills.  [email protected]
