What I Have Learned

I am continuous thankful for the opportunity to be a part of such a program and to learn from the students. Just because you may not have been given all the tools you needed to succeed does not mean the desire is not there.

See those red circles???

We are always grateful to visit a co-working space during our cohorts since we envision many of our students working out of one in the future!

The beginning of my YWebCA internship

Now as a member of the team, I have never felt more welcomed and supported. I have heard stories about bad internship experiences from friends who were shuffled out of the way and who left their positions feeling undervalued.

Without this Class

Without this class, I never would have been able to work up the courage to negotiate my wage.

Real stories and experienced from real students who've gone the program and completed the YWeb Career Academy. Some have chosen to share their experiences, and outlooks and general information.

About YWeb CA

Why Do It

YWCA Madison works every day to eliminate racism and empower women. Through programs in race & gender equity, job training & transportation, and housing & shelter, we create real change for women, families and communities.

Our Community

We believe that the best way to introduce our students to the culture of the tech industry is to see where the work gets done. Attend classes and work one-on-one with students to help them learn new concepts and debug projects. Share your expertise and connections as a mentor. You will be paired with one to two students to provide out-of-class mentoring and networking opportunities.

List of our volunteers


They say it takes a village. We believe in and value all of our volunteers and partners. They are a big part of why YWeb CA works. Their insights, perspectives, experiences, mentoring and tutoring is something that we can't say enough about.
