Thank you in advance for your important Gift!
Your gift to YWCA Delaware supports programs like YW Girl, a dynamic college and career preparation program for high school girls that focuses on empowering our youth through increased self-esteem, confidence, leadership skills and networking opportunities.
This four-year program, held at high schools throughout Delaware, sets a foundation of success in the first year and builds upon that success until graduation. Young women leave school with a completed Action Plan complimented by an Individualized Success Plan and a toolbox of college and employability skills combined with the knowledge that they can achieve their dreams!
Young women like Ayana, the 2018 Sally Rask Scholarship recipient, now attending Lincoln University benefit from your Giving Tuesday gifts.
Ayana, raised by a single mother, worked hard as a YW Girl and in high school. She so impressed the Sally Rask foundation, that they awarded her a scholarship to attend Lincoln University, the school of her dreams. The scholarship is designed for in-state Delaware colleges and universities.
Ayana and young women like her have brighter futures because of your gifts.
