Providing mentorship, cultural enrichment, social-emotional learning, leadership training, and exposure to post-secondary education, YWCA’s EmpowerGirls helps Black and Latina middle schoolers from high-need communities develop the skills, abilities, and knowledge they need to achieve in the 21st century. EmpowerSTEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) helps them develop technical, creative, and interpersonal skills for success in the workforce and creates opportunities for students to build social capital – valuable connections to mentors, employers, and universities that broaden their academic and career prospects. A Career Education and Training Center helps under- and unemployed adults, primarily women, gain credentials and skills leading to certifications in hospitality, healthcare, and information technology. For over 100 years, YWCA NCA has advocated for racial and gender justice for women and girls in the region. Today, it helps them gain the credentials and confidence they need to succeed.

About the Catalogue for Philanthropy
Each year 120 expert reviewers evaluate applicants for distinction, merit, and impact. Each featured charity has been successfully site visited and its financials given the thumbs up. The Catalogue for Philanthropy charges no fees and raises funds separately to support its work. Since 2003, it has raised over $40 million for charities across the Greater Washington region.
The Catalogue for Philanthropy looks to friends like you to keep our services independent and entirely free of charge. Consider a small contribution to the Catalogue to cap off your gift and help the causes you care about get the full support they deserve!
