Get Involved

image description

Being involved with others can make a difference in your own life.  Involved people enjoy better health, make new friendships, and learn new skills.  You can learn about your community, assist a neighbor in need, and even have a little fun, all while making a difference.

Here are some ways to get involved at YWCA Greater Pittsburgh:


The YWCA Greater Pittsburgh has a long and rich history of advocating for policies that improve the lives of women, girls, and vulnerable communities.  This work is carried on today through the YW’s Center for Race and Gender Equity.

Closing the Gap

Closing the Gap: 50 Years Seeking Equal Pay is a A two-year multimedia campaign produced by WQED Multimedia in partnership with YWCA Greater Pittsburgh explores why the pay gap persists and how to improve it. We hope to arm women with information and skills to assist them in earning fair pay throughout their own careers and toward a secure retirement.


Internship opportunities bridge the gap between the educational and professional worlds, and build valuable networks of colleagues and professional references that can help with future employment. At YWCA Greater Pittsburgh, we have internship opportunities in health and social services, human relations, communications, fund development, and advocacy work.
