   About the Position

Impact Statement
For over 100 years, the YW has created a safe environment for people to learn and grow. Whether that’s providing emergency shelter, after-school youth programs, or hands-on training for women to develop business skills, we help people move forward with dignity and respect. We care about our community
and work to make it stronger.

The YW aspires to be led by a Board of Directors composed of individuals who self-identify as women, transgender, non-binary, or Two-Spirit.
