Mission Statement

YWCA of Olympia

(Eliminating Racism, Empowering Women)

The YWCA serves the whole woman: her mind, body, and spirit. We are an organization that focuses on supporting and empowering women of all ages to discover and celebrate both physical and spiritual health, self-esteem, and self-sufficiency. Our goal is to inspire, engage, support, and empower our membership to reflect our diverse community.

Description

Girls Without Limits! has been serving young women aged 9-14 since 1998. It focuses on math, science, and literacy skills in a self-esteem building environment outside of school. It was created for young women based on research showing that girls go downhill in math and science between the ages of 9-14. The YWCA recognized that sexism and gender roles play a role in academic success and created Girls Without Limits! as an alternative place to work on these academic subjects.
