There are so many things we are thankful for this year, but at the very top of that list is YOU. Without you, we would not be able to do what we do – being a leading voice for women, girls, and all marginalized individuals across South Florida.

We wish you, your family, friends, and loved ones a Happy #Thanksgiving!

They say you miss 100% of the shots you don't shoot - so we are just going to put this out there:

A $10,000 gift could provide access to our Community Engagement & Personal Advocacy program, the 21-Day Challenge, to non-English speaking communities in their native language. We want to make sure everyone has access to this essential tool for positive change!

YWCA South Florida's WE360 program is designed to provide women of color with the educational tools to increase their knowledge and confidence as entrepreneurs.

Check out what one of our many graduates had to say:
“I loved the YWCA South Florida’s WE360° program and process! The trainer was excellent! I can still hear her saying “What is your Unique value proposition?” Since joining in July, WE360° helped me become much more polished and ready to go out and ask for donations and grants which will help my business succeed.”
- Arleen Lambert: CEO & Founder of Early Education Link
