alvirita little center:

In 1969, a group of mothers approached Alvirita Little with a problem. Activities and clubs were closed to their daughters

The teen pregnancy rate was high. And the mothers themselves, working two jobs at a time, could not supervise their girls. Mrs. Little rallied supporters of her United Methodist Church for funding to start the Girls Club of Puget Sound in a rented building on what is now Martin Luther King Jr. Way.

The GirlsFirst Offices were donated to the YWCA by Alvirita Little. The Alvirita Little Center has a teen center, classrooms and a play area. Programs range from substance-abuse prevention to pregnancy prevention.

Alvirita Little died in 2006 at age 93.

The programs offered in this location are:

  • YWCA GirlsFirst Program - Encourages leadership, instill confidence, develop skills, and provide opportunities to girls of color.
