YWeb Career Academy

A- A A+

The next YWeb session is July 5 – October 9, 2021.

What is YWeb Career Academy?

As part of YWCA Allentown’s ongoing mission to eliminate racism and empower women, the YWeb Career Academy program provides education in digital skills to traditionally underrepresented or vulnerable populations, such as women of color, survivors of domestic violence, those unemployed or displaced due to COVID-19, and low-wage workers. YWCA Allentown couples this programming with referrals for supportive services and job coaching to ensure each participant’s success.

The program is part of a national partnership with Google.org and YWCA USA.

Upon completion of the online course, students will have opportunities to pursue full-time permanent employment, a paid internship or freelance careers in technology through partnerships established by YWCA Allentown.
