YWCA Glendale and YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley are joining forces by combining YWCA Glendale’s Camp Rosie and YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley Girls Rise Leadership Camp to leverage resources and deepen its community impact to empower girls in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank and all surrounding school districts.

By promoting assertive self-expression, teaching important life skills, and allowing the practice of leadership in a variety of settings, this unique and transformational pre-high school summer program inspires girls to reach their full potential. In this girl-centered space, campers have an opportunity to express themselves while building new friendships and making connections with women entrepreneurs and role models.

Our 2021 virtual summer program emphasizes girls’ empowerment through workshops that celebrate the value of exploring and validating girls' identities and experiences. Workshops include healthy relationships, life skills, technology and art projects, group trust and bonding exercises, nutrition, and physical activity. Additionally, girls prepare for the future through the camps’ diverse women guest speakers, college campus tours, as well as learning entrepreneurship and civic engagement.
