YWeb Career Academy

A- A A+

The next YWeb session is July 12 – October 16, 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 FREE education in digital skills to traditionally underrepresented or vulnerable populations, such as those unemployed or displaced due to COVID-19, recent high school or GED graduates, returning or non-traditional students, 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.
