This month, we are proud to celebrate one of our young moms, Danielle Yonemura, who has been with us for eight years. She has worked incredibly hard to build a successful life for herself and her daughter. 
"I learned how to become a good mother going to the YWRC over the years. I started out not knowing the first thing about being a mother and I was scared. When I graduated, I left a great, intelligent, motivated, young, successful mother."

Save the Dates for our 40th Anniversary Event Series! 
The YWRC is turning 40 and we're ready to celebrate! Join us for 12 events throughout 2018 in honor of where we've been, where we are now and where we hope to be in the future.
Each event will be an opportunity to learn more about the YWRC, show your support for the critical work we do with girls and young women and, of course, to celebrate with fellow community members!
