In 2013-14 we will be doubling the capacity of our programs because there is such a high demand amongst women and girls to participate. Funding will enable us to grow our services and impact at least 250 women, 500 girls, and 2000 community members in the coming year.
We currently have a waiting list and expanding our program is only possible with increased funding. Y-WE fills a unique niche as a single gender program because many girls, from immigrant families in particular, are not permitted to attend co-gender after school programs. Across the board, girls from low income families tend to lack have access to transportation & scholarships to participate in enrichment activities. Y-WE provides safety, cultural respect, transportation, food, and scholarships in order to assure that ALL girls who wish to have access to our programs and the educational resources we offer are provided with that opportunity.
