YWCA is seeking young professionals in the Puget Sound region who are interested in being champions for women and families and deepening engagement in the organization’s mission.
This exclusive group will have access to:
- Mentorship and networking opportunities to build personal and professional connections in the Seattle area.
- Unique and collective ways to get involved in YWCA’s community.
- Personalized opportunities to expand or create an individual relationship with YWCA, such as becoming a donor, exclusive site visits, and tailored updates.
- Learn about current policy issues and advocacy opportunities to support the women and families YWCA serves.
Additionally, GenRising membership will provide opportunities to meet new people and connect with likeminded young professionals. You will help mobilize action around causes you’re passionate about, lend your talent and time to supporting some of the most vulnerable and marginalized people in King and Snohomish Counties, and learn more about how you can be an ally in your community’s race and social justice work.
As a YWCA GenRiser, you are the next generation of philanthropists, policy influencers, and community leaders. You are positioned to make sustaining impact on the climate of the community in which you live.
