                     ywca program highlights
         Early Childhood Education and Day Care Programs
                   The YWCA of Westmoreland County provides Preschool, Safety Camp, Young Wonders, Girls Project and Kidz
                   Zone - Before and After School programs to the community. In 2008 our Kidz Zone programs saw significant
                   growth at both locations.
         Advocacy, Education, and Racial Justice
                   The YWCA provides a wide range of social service programs that focus on our mission to eliminate racism and
                   to create opportunities for women and girls. In 2008, the International Women’s Group extended its
                   leadership opportunities for women from many different countries to participate in the planning of their program.
                   The Race Matters Roundtables increased their advanced learning opportunities for “graduates” of the study
                   circle program.
         Technology Education
                   The YWCA Computer Center offers computer classes in the morning, afternoon and evening hours to meet the
                   varied needs of our students. A tech support group called Bagels & Bytes meets monthly, as does our Over 50
                   Computer Club. In our TechGYRLS program, 2008 was the first year that the YWCA sent four all-girl challenge
                   teams to the First Lego League state robotics competition.
         Fitness and Wellness
                   The YWCA of Westmoreland County continues to provide many fitness, wellness, and social opportunities for
                   our members and the community. Our Girls Field Hockey program now provides both spring and winter skills
                   building programs in addition to the regular fall season of competition.
         Thrift Shop
                   The YWCA Thrift Shop was asked by the state of Pennsylvania in 2008 to become the Westmoreland County
                   clothing provider for the new PA WORKWEAR program. This program provides women with interview outfits
                   and a week’s worth of work-ready clothing for their new jobs.
         Literacy program
                   The YWCA Literacy Program gives adults the opportunity to acquire the literacy skills they need in order to be
                   effective in their roles as members of their families, communities and workplaces. In 2008, the Literacy Program
                   received a grant that enabled us to extend English as Second Language classes to early beginners during the
                   summer months.
