YWCA Glendale and YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley are joining forces by combing 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 the Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena school district.

This exciting summer program emphasizes girls’ empowerment through workshops and team-building exercises, along with technology and art projects. The camp teaches life skills such as healthy relationships, nutrition, self-defense, and physical fitness.

Additionally, girls prepare for the future through the camps’ diverse female guest speakers, tours of college campuses, as well as learning entrepreneurship and civic engagement.
