AVENUES

Our Avenues After-School Program is specially designed for girls between the ages of 11 and 14, addressing specific needs and concerns girls are faced with at this difficult age of transition. Intervention programming is typically targeted toward elementary and high school girls, leaving middle school girls on their own to learn how to cope with the many changes they experience as they move from an elementary school setting to a high school setting, as their bodies change in ways that unfamiliar, and as their circle of friends begins to be defined in both positive and negative ways. The Avenues program provides a unique opportunity for participants to have open discussions amongst peers, guided by a trained facilitator, while receiving accurate information on topics of interest and concern. While participating in Avenues, these girls will:

LEARN how to deal with peer pressure and form positive social relationships;

BUILD healthy physical, emotional and social habits;

DEVELOP their leadership skills; and

EMPOWER themselves for a bright and successful personal and professional future.

Population(s) Served

The Brown Family Scholarship Fund, started in 1990 by former Mayor Ab Brown, provides financial assistance to female high school students from Riverside and Alvord Unified School Districts during their pursuit of higher education. The Fund is now supported by our annual Men Who Cook Fundraiser as well as generous donations to the organization. Each year, the YWCA awards one or more scholarships of $500; the number of scholarships awarded is dependent on donations received to support the Fund.

Population(s) Served

The YWCA partners with local medical professionals and hospitals to offer an in-depth childbirth preparation class that is available to all members of the community, no matter where they choose to birth. Our course is unique because we address all those “other” things that are not part of a typical Lamaze class or regularly scheduled doctor’s visit. We make the course interactive, having participants get on the floor and practice different positions, breathing techniques and massage methods to ease pain and anxiety during the laboring process. Our goal is to have Mom walk away from the course feeling informed and empowered to make the choices she needs to make for the safe, healthy delivery of her child.

Population(s) Served

Our Professional Women’s Academy is a 10-month program that assists young women who desire personal and professional empowerment and guidance to transform their lives through mentoring relationships focused on education, career and personal growth. The program targets three different demographics of women: high school girls interested in pursuing a higher education, young women in college working towards a career, and women returning to the workforce from an extended period of absence (i.e. stay-with-the-kids moms, Veterans, etc.). Women between the ages of 17 and 35 can apply to be matched with a volunteer mentor who provides them with support, encouragement and guidance as they work toward their personal and professional goals.
