Prevention and Empowerment About
The YWCA's Prevention and Empowerment Services seeks to provide individuals and the community with evidenced based approaches to prevent domestic abuse and sexual assault. This is accomplished through providing individual youth with curriculum that empowers them to make informed decisions about their lives, relationships, and communities; empowering young women to see themselves as leaders in creating change; engaging with community systems that have the power to create change; hosting community awareness events and initiatives; and working to examine and promote policies that aim to prevent violence before it occurs.
The mission of the YWCA West Central Michigan is:
Empowering Women and Girls
Promoting Peace, Justice, Freedom, and Dignity for all
