YWCA Greater Green Bay

Women's Empowerment Center


YWCA Greater Green Bay has been striving to meet the changing needs of women and girls in the Brown County area since 1919.   Through the years of service we have accomplished great milestones.  In the 20's we offered safe boarding houses to working women, we offered programs to war brides in the 40's, sponsored girl reserves in the 60's, and today we remain at the forefront of women's issues by spearheading a Women's Empowerment Center which opened September 2013.

The Women's Empowerment Center empowers women of all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds to become economically independent and thrive in the workplace. Programs are designed to help women build self-confidence, develop job/life skills, and gain relevant work experience in a positive, nurturing environment that fosters both personal and professional growth.
