Established in 1894, YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. We envision a society where all people can thrive and all communities are valued, respected, and self-directed.

When you work with YWCA, you make a difference. 

Founded in 1894, our YWCA is the oldest and largest non-profit in the region focused on the needs of women. We have 20+ locations and serve more than 7,000 women, men, and children annually across Seattle, King County, and Snohomish County.

YWCA is women and BIPOC-led, family-centered, and supportive of employees. Full-time employees (30+ hours) enjoy a benefits package that includes health insurance, holidays, vacation and sick leave, plus an outstanding retirement plan.

At YWCA, we recognize the power of lived expertise: the insights, knowledge, and skills developed by those who have navigated systems and experienced inequity. Valuing lived expertise in our workforce helps YWCA develop culturally responsive programs, build trust with participants, increase our ability to serve communities furthest from opportunity, deepen our collective understanding, and break down barriers to equity.
