How We Help

July 14, 2017

The Preparation

A group of interns from American Family Insurance sat down with instructors from YWeb to learn more about the program and how it has helped dozens of people jumpstart their careers. As students getting ready to enter the workforce, we asked Rasheid and Julia what YWeb does to prepare its students for success.

I knew I would face couple of challenges

While I was waiting for my permit, I could not work hence I had to sit at home. I was looking for opportunity to kill my time as I had no friends and family to be with. So, I started to look out for opportunities that could allow me to volunteer.

Knowledge or Experience

When I learned about the YWeb program I was hesitating to enroll because I thought that my educational background does not relate in any way to it.
 

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.
