y-we-volunteer“I love volunteering with Y-WE! Seeing the girls grow and mature into confident young women is incredibly inspiring! In addition, the community of women and mentors has supported my own growth and provided me with my own role models. The inclusivity, warmth, and empowerment at Y-WE is unmatched!”

The few times I’ve volunteered with Y-WE have been so much fun!  I was welcomed with open arms and everyone (and I do mean EVERYONE) is so warm, light-hearted, and easy going.  I started volunteering with Y-WE because, as Whitney Houston sings it, “I believe the children are our future…”  Every single person has something to contribute to our community and I felt like empowering young women would be my niche.  In actuality it was the young women of this organization that inspired me!  I’m so amazed by the leaders of Y-WE and most especially the young members who continue to give me faith about our future generation.
