YWCA programming revolves around our two core missions - eliminating racism and empowering women.
Programs that work toward eliminating racism come in many forms and celebrate the lives and cultures of people from all over the world. We believe that sharing truly leads to caring.
Programs that work toward empowering women target young girls and mature women alike. We believe that support systems are essential to success. As a result, many of our programs also empower families.
Like our programs, YWCA Ames-ISU events revolve around our two core missions. Be it raising money for programs, raising awareness of important social issues, or recognizing those living out a YW mission, YWCA events allow us to continue working toward eliminating racism and empowering women.
