The economic empowerment of women is key to self-sufficiency, self-esteeem and ending the cycle of welfare. YWCA Lancaster is committed to ensuring women have the resources they need to support themselves and their families.
TechGYRLS is a Hallmark Program of YWCA that is geared to getting girls, ages 9 to 12, excited about non-traditional careers that are high in pay and under served by women — science, technology, engineering, and math. The YWCA Lancaster TechGYRLS program is offered during the summer as a two-week day camp and is in most of the elementary schools in the School District of Lancaster.Girls learn to build computer programs for Lego robots, produce Public Service Announcements with video and production equipment, explore non-traditional trade careers at Thaddeus Stevens College of Science & Technology, go on fun field trips and more! The girls also participate in programs that focus on team building, self awareness/self esteem, workplace skills and business etiquette. For more information please see our TechGYRLS Brochure .
