Herstory

Most Aucklanders have an aunt, mother, sister or grand-mother who has attended a free YWCA programme or stayed at a YWCA hostel at some time in their lives.

The YWCA Auckland has touched the lives of so many women since we began in 1885.  From sports team, beach camps and thrift clubs to holiday programmes and self defence courses, we have always been part of Auckland’s social fabric.

We are continuing the fight of our pioneering sisters by working diligently on issues which strengthen our communities through empowering women.
