WU YWCA Northeast Kansas Marketing and Development VISTA
The YWCA Northeast Kansas Marketing and Development VISTA will increase public awareness about the YWCA mission of eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. The VISTA will increase awareness of the YWCA educational, healthcare and justice programs to individuals and families in Shawnee, Jackson and Wabaunsee Counties in Kansas. As a result of the poverty issues identified in the Momentum 2022 plan, this VISTA will build the capacity of the YWCA addressing poverty issues impacting more than one-in-five area children – living below the poverty line. The goal is to create a system to collect, save and track data for future grant opportunities and give a voice to individuals and families.
