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 1920’s we offered safe boarding houses to working women, we offered programs to war brides in the 1940’s, sponsored girl reserves in the 1960’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 seeks to “empower and equip women to chart their own course toward personal fulfillment and economic self-sufficiency.” Programs are designed to help women of all ethnicities build self-confidence, develop job/life skills, and gain relevant work experience in a positive, nurturing environment that fosters personal and professional growth.

Women’s Empowerment Highlights:

  • 2,000 visits to the Women’s Career Closet each year! Women receive work-appropriate clothing, shoes, and accessories to dress for success!
  • Life coaching boosts women’s self-esteem and provides opportunities for personal enrichment and professional growth in a group setting.
  • Outfitting Women for Success Series are specialized programs designed to empower women in their journey through life.
