This year, our innovative YW Brooklyn LEAD program helped provide college access and leadership development for more than 300 low-income girls of color from 50 different high schools.
This year, our Social Justice Community Center continued to be home to a broad range of grassroots nonprofits, civic and community groups and was visited by more than 20,000 community members.
This year, we were a leading voice for women and girls advocating for educational equity, wage parity, women in leadership and an end to gender-based violence.
And this year, YWCA Brooklyn was recognized with several unique distinctions including a National Excellence Award for Women’s Empowerment, a Youth Voice Award and a Legacy Award.
