Our Programs for Girls Here at the YWCA, we are so fortunate that our lives are filled with amazing young women, and a community of individuals that are interested in supporting the positive development of adolescent girls. We are also fortunate to be engaged in meaningful programs and projects that benefit girls: Girls Circle & Girls Without Limits!
Girls Circle The YWCA is currently working with 14 schools in 6 school districts in Thurston County to deliver Girls Circle. Girls Circle is a nationally recognized program that research shows promotes academic achievement, improves the ability of girls to form healthier bonds with others, and reduces their rates of alcohol use.So far in 2012/13, we have served 90 girls.
