Eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities.
Since its founding in 1902, the YWCA of Greater Atlanta has been an advocate for women and families in Georgia. We address the needs of women and families at multiple levels, providing direct services and programs in tandem with public policy analysis.
We create real change. Every day.
The Georgia Women's Policy Institute (GWPI) is our signature advocacy program that teaches women from diverse backgrounds how to develop and support real-world statewide policies that impact women and families in Georgia.
Our Early Learning Advocacy (ELA) offers working parents affordable childcare and early education for children six weeks through five years. Teen Girls in Technology (TGI Tech) is our multi-year educational and experiential learning program that exposes middle and high school girls from Title I public schools to careers in STEAM professions.
Through our ENCOREplus program, we provide breast and cervical cancer education and free health screenings to underserved and underinsured women throughout Metro-Atlanta.
We are proud of the breadth and depth of our programs and hope you will support us as we continue to impact communities in Georgia.
