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.
