You are cordially invited to join YWCA for the first-ever information session for the newly formed YWCA Fire Council, an advisory council of the YWCA of the City of New York.

At this event, you'll have a chance to meet the current Executive Committee members, have some drinks and small bites*, and learn more about how to get involved with the Fire Council, either as an Executive Committee member or otherwise.

This is a casual event, and you're welcome to join when you can and leave when you must. Please keep in mind that we will give an informational presentation at around 6:30 p.m., immediately followed by a question-and-answer session.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The mission of the YWCA Fire Council is to serve as a vehicle for volunteerism and call attention to, offer solutions for, and advocate change for the issues that matter most to young women in NYC.

The Fire Council's vision is to live in a world where young women's voices, needs, and priorities are reflected in and advanced through public policies at the city, state, and national levels. Young women from all backgrounds will be fully empowered with the knowledge and resources needed to take control of their own lives; structural barriers to achieving their goals will be eradicated; and appropriate supports to help them achieve those goals will be in place.


Fire Council participation is open to all self-identified young women between the ages of 21 and 39. The YWCA Fire Council strives for its membership and governing body to reflect the racial, cultural, and socio-economic diversity of New York City in accordance with the YWCA of the City of New York's commitment to working within an intersectional framework to eradicate gender inequality.
