YWCA of Adelaide’s purpose is to build stronger communities through the leadership of women and girls. We do this by supporting them during every step of their leadership journey. The organisation has been working with and for young women in Adelaide since 1880 and is recognised as the leading voice for young women in SA. We deliver programs which focus on early intervention and primary prevention in areas such as young women's leadership, training and employment, mentoring and respectful relationships. To do so we partner with schools, government and industry.
