What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Workplace Literacy

The Workforce Literacy Program (WLP) prepares women who have been chronically unemployed with basic skills to enter the job market. Additionally, participants are given opportunities to take classroom administered, practice Pre-GED tests.  Because our target population faces a multitude of barriers in entering the workplace we also make referrals to appropriate social service agencies.

WLP is a 6 week program that helps women become employable and find jobs.  WLP participants receive:

Math instruction including GED preparation

Computer instruction including: preparing resumes and cover letters as well as performing internet job searches

Language Arts instruction including reading comprehension and writing for resumes and cover letters

Workplace Literacy including interview techniques, proper conduct in the workplace , and dressing for success


WLP helps all participants become more involved in their communities by showing them how to register to vote, apply for library cards, and apply for driver's licenses and/or learner's permits.
Who can participate in WLP?

WLP is available to women living in the Metro Washington DC area.

Population(s) Served

The YWCA National Capital Area offers Health & Wellness programs at an affordable rate to the women of our community.  We do not charge any monthly fees.  Participants only pay for the classes they attend or the services they receive.

Programs include: Group Exercise & Personal Training.

Population(s) Served

For a child, anything is possible. We recognize the endless possibilities for young people and respond with programs that nurture dreams, instill confidence and encourage healthy, productive futures.

Our Children's Center, located near the Dunn Loring metro station in Vienna, Virginia, serves 84 children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old with year-round, high quality, affordable childcare and preschool in an environment that is warm, loving, fun and educational.

Staff retention and commitment is also important to the YWCA Children's Center. It sets us apart - over 80% of our instructors have five or more years of experience at the Center. It is fully licensed, with qualified teachers, nutritious meals, fitness programs, music, and language skills development. It is our philosophy to work with families in supporting their children as they explore the world and develop their mental and physical abilities.
