While local YWCA Associations are our primary internal partners, the YWCA USA also creates strong connections with external organizations of influence and affluence to help us advance our work to empower women and eliminate racism, both nationally and locally. Meet our team of partners and find out how you can join the team below:
First Book: The YWCA USA has partnered with First Book, which is a national nonprofit organization that provides access to high-quality, free and low-cost books for programs and schools who serve children in need. First Book has distributed over 100 million new books to schools and community programs serving children from low-income families. First Book is generously providing YWCA local associations with the opportunity to participate in their two book programs, First Book National Book Bank and First Book Marketplace.
United States Olympic Committee: Since its inception, the YWCA USA has been a Council member of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC), as a Multi-Sport Organization (MSO). The USOC orchestrates a variety of community outreach and education programs to ensure that U.S. athletes stay active and engaged in sport from the beginner stages to the elite level. These programs range from athlete outreach opportunities to partnerships with community sport organizations and the annual Olympic Day celebration, which promotes Olympic ideals in addition to overall fitness and well-being.
Million Women Mentors: During National Mentoring Month in January, YWCA USA is a strategic partner with Million Women Mentors. Million Women Mentors is an initiative of STEMconnector® in collaboration with over 30 leading national organizations. The goal of the initiative is to engage one million science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) mentors to increase the interest and confidence of girls and young women in STEM programs and careers.
