Board service is a great way to make a meaningful impact in our community. We strive for inclusiveness and diversity in gender, professional skills, talent, age, and interests. Whatever your background, the most important requirement for board service is a passion for social justice and improving the lives of survivors of domestic violence.
The mission of the YWCA is to empower women, eliminate racism and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Communication: inclusiveness, teamwork and respect
Caring: Empathy, balance, and client service
What Makes YWCA Monterey County Distinctive?
The YWCA is the only agency in Monterey County proving a full range of prevention,intervention, education, and support services for women and children survivors of domestic violence. We also provide shelter and legal support services for those fleeing from human trafficking. We strive to make our services effective, culturally appropriate, and trauma informed.
The YWCA operates a confidential 24 hour hotline and two full service residential emergency shelters, legal advocacy assistance and court accompaniment, trauma therapy for adults and children, and teen dating violence prevention workshops. Because domestic violence is a community concern and public health issue, we also provide comprehensive training for first responders, child protection workers, law enforcement agencies, and victim advocates.
