Elimination of racism and the empowerment of women and girls.

Description:
The YWCA Ames-ISU works to eliminate racism and empower women through its GIRLS Power Mentoring Program, High School Mentoring Program, Engaging International Spouses, International Friendship Fairs, and Holiday Giving Tree and Food Drive. We have several events and fundraisers throughout the year including 'Just Desserts', MLK, Jr. Birthday Celebration, 'Women of Achievement', and more.

History:
The YWCA is the oldest and largest multicultural women's organization in the world. Across the globe, we have more than 25 million members in 122 countries, including 2 million members in 300 local associations in the United States. More important than the numbers is our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. We provide safe places for women and girls, build strong women leaders and advocate for women's rights and civil rights in Congress.

Women come to the YWCA in times of crisis as survivors of rape or domestic violence. They come for job training and career counseling. They come for childcare. They come for health and fitness. Women come for a variety of reasons and leave with a renewed spirit, new skills, and stronger lives.
YWCA associations are divided nationally by regions. Our regional associations allow us to pool resources, provide additional services and training and advocate for change at the national, state and local levels.
