Description: Established in 1858 as a voice for women's issues, we opened the first employment bureau for women several years later. That was only the beginning of more than 150 years of active advocacy and programming for women's rights and civil rights.

We continue to evolve to meet today's challenges in eliminating racism and empowering women. We've shifted to a bottoms-up, grassroots structure. We've launched a revitalized brand that reaffirms the mission of working aggressively for women and people of color. And we're engaging women 18- to 34-years old to carry on the YWCA mission for years to come.
Mission: YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
Programs: Teen Programming

The girls in the program receive guidance on issues such as avoiding drug use, identifying healthy relationships and other things that affect adolescent girls. We serve middle school-aged girls in the Pajaro Valley in a safe and comfortable learning environment.

Early Childhood Education

YWCA's pre-school, called "La Escuelita", focuses on social and emotional development to support school readiness. Our focus is on developing children to reach their potential and strengthening families in the process!
Facilities: The Manfre Manor is our beautiful historical facility, available to the community at affordable rates. To inquire about availability, please call 831-724-6078.
Volunteer Info: There are lots of opportunities throughout the year to volunteer with the YWCA from the Multicultural Celebration to the Teen Program and assisting with our Preschool Graduation. Since volunteering needs change regularly, please contact Kimberly Garcia to find out where we could use your help!
