What is the difference between YWCA and YMCA?

YWCA Southeast Wisconsin is dedicated to the wider YWCA mission: Eliminating racism and empowering women.

Our goal is to use education as an agent of change to support disadvantaged and underserved people in our community raise the bar for themselves and access greater opportunity to reach their potential; we believe a community based on equality serves everyone, equally.

It’s our mission to be the change we wish to see in the world, through progressive and intentional changes at every level, to meet the needs of all our people, our organization and our community, without disadvantaging anyone or anything in the process.

The YMCA offers programs, services and initiatives focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility based on the unique needs of the communities it serves. YMCA focuses on “nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the nation’s health and overall well-being” and providing opportunities to give back and support the local neighborhoods in which it operates. The organization is guided by four core values: Caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
