Support YWCP

The YWCP Foundation aims to break the cycle of poverty for girls in Rochester by increasing their economic self-sufficiency through improved leadership skills, career awareness and readiness, and college readiness and access.

To accomplish this, the YWCP Foundation creates, implements and supports innovative programs for the students of YWCP Charter School that educate the “whole girl”, giving them the confidence they need to succeed in college and in life.

Gifts to the YWCP Foundation provide support for programs, including:

  • College campus visits
  • Summer Bridge programs
  • Career exploration programs
  • Workplace tours and internships
  • Summer camp scholarships
  • Senior blazers and ties
  • Mentoring
  • Classroom grants
