YWCA Greater Pittsburgh has been a part of the educational landscape of Southwestern Pennsylvania for more than 100 years, having opened an “Industrial School” for boys and girls in the late 19th century. In the decades since then, the YW has operated multiple childcare and out-of-school programs, viewing education as central to our vision of a community that advances education, opportunity, and equity regardless of gender, race, or background.

Today, we offer educational programming for individuals and communities of all ages, from infancy through adulthood. Our Keystone STAR 4 Early Care Center prepares infants through five year-olds to succeed in the years ahead. Our STEM (“Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics”) programs teach girls to thrive in areas previously dominated by men. And our Center for Race & Gender Equity provides workshops and training for workplaces, communities, and schools to understand and resist racism.

In accordance with Governor Wolf’s directive to shelter-in-place through Thursday, April 30th, our Wood Street office, Homewood-Brushton location with childcare services, and Pre-K Counts classroom located at Propel Braddock Hills are currently closed. Parents will be notified once they are able to reopen.  Our staff is working remotely to continue to provide important services to our community.  Please check our website for updates and to sign up to be a friend of the YWCA Greater Pittsburgh.  For a list of local resources, please follow this link.
