This summer is Y-WE is offering a series of affinity programming especially for BIPOC girls/women/non-binary/trans/and gender expansive youth ages 13-19. These programs are a part of Black Girl/NB Summer, but are open to non-Black BIPOC youth as well.

Applications are now closed. Check back for summer 2023 opportunities!

Wellness Drop-ins

June 2, July 7, August 4, all 6-8PM

Join Therapist Rian Roberson on the first Thursday of the month all summer for a wellness drop in session. This is a place for BIPOC girls and gender expansive folks to explore mental health practices and connect with one another in a supportive community. Talking about mental health is no longer taboo — it is essential, especially for those who experience multiple areas of marginalization. We are creating an intentional space for participants to talk about mental health, share experience, ask questions, gather resources, and be heard and held by similar others, moderated by a Black, queer mental health counselor. 

Horseback Riding (FULL)

August 25-27

Let’s ride horses! During this day camp, Y-WE will partner with the Buffalo Soldier of Seattle at Legends ranch, horse training and boarding facility located in Roy, Wa (near Tacoma). Participants will learn more about the history of Black women during the western era, learn to saddle and ride a horse, change a tire, build a fire and more.

Join Y-WE and invest in a better future for young women*
*those who identify as women, girls, trans, non-binary, or gender expansive
