The YMCA has a sister organization for young women, but this is an independent one that has its own relevant agendas. These can be addressed by products like womens Christian tees, said products being significantly used in branding and messaging. Also, these may serve as uniforms of sorts whenever there is a YWCA event.
This organization is for young Christian women of all ages actually, but the target audience or the one that should be most involved are youngsters. College or senior high ages are preferred, as well as adults who hold down jobs, but this should not be a too important thing. The organization has a primary mission that is trying to eliminate racism, and any classification of the above sort may not help.
But then, this is a strong enough group, even stronger than most. And the mission and vision thing is simple, clear and direct. You cannot have a more active group of folks who can work out things like strengthening communities to outreach programs that are more relevant socially, like sports and medical missions.
It also runs its own hostels around the world, same as the brother organization the YMCA. This is an international group that is growing every year, and can be found in every state of this country and in countries like Israel, Finland, Russia and other parts of the world. Where Christianity has taken root, this will be found.
And even in clearly non Christian countries, their job is about reaching out and connecting and not for conversion. Conversion is something considered too undemocratic by folks here, especially when there is a lot of prejudice and racism that are attached to missionary work. They do not preach but simply and perfectly practice.
Of course perfection is a work in progress here, but you can see the solidarity of the efforts here. The tees can actually tell you the kind of progress that they have of this kind. Because they actually update these tees from time to time, so that you can have an idea where things are heading for members and what is their topmost priority.
Blood donations, volunteerism, and many other kinds of needful work in communities is done everyday. These are all organized under a management program which includes the work of members and volunteers. There is always emphasis on community outreach that works at the grassroots.
For instance, you will find how the work you may be doing as a volunteer here is actually more fun. There is not a minute of inaction, and great activities will always be something that the job prioritizes. You may actually be helping out more folks this way, because it is not a directly charitable process but one that does much more.
This will be the thing you have to remember about being involved here. And you can actually take great memories out of the experience. Many are active for some specific years before toning down, for instance, when they have families of their own.
