Community Report
all together, now
Dear Friends,
For more than 145 years, YWCA Boston—America’s first—has been in the vanguard of improving the
lives of our city’s residents. While our work has evolved over time to meet the changing needs of the city,
we have never wavered in our mission: to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice,
and dignity for all people.
This past year, with our Sesquicentennial in sight and support from the Boston Foundation, YW Boston
consulted Boston’s top philanthropic, corporate and community minds to consider our mission and the
work needed to remedy persistent inequities in our city. The result has been our recognition that direct
service to Boston’s neediest alone is simply not enough.
The core issues we work to resolve—racism, sexism and the lack of social cohesion—are systemic and
thus require systemic solutions. We believe the key to these systems is the engagement of people across
racial, gender, social and organizational barriers to work through those things that divide us. A thorough
community assessment revealed that divides are most significant in Boston’s public health, safety and
education sectors.
Consequently, YW Boston is moving boldly forward with re-energized programs to increase access to
better health, make neighborhoods safer for everyone, and close the educational achievement gap.

letter from
We are gratified by the endorsement and support of many community and corporate leaders and
organizations. We extend our deepest appreciation and respect to them and the more than 5,000
individuals who are participating in our life-altering work. And we invite and encourage you to
continue in our shared efforts to make Boston a better city for all.
our leadership
To do so, YW Boston has acquired the renowned civic leadership programs LeadBoston and InIt, to
empower city leaders and youth to create positive social change. We have broadened our Community
Dialogues to engage Boston Public School administrators, teachers and parents about underlying and
divisive racial biases, expanded our Youth/Police Dialogues programs to more Boston Police precincts,
and extended our nationally-recognized women’s and girls’ health literacy programs to the public schools
and more community health centers.

Improving
Our Schools
Julia Bott is the principal of the Mendell Elementary
School in Roxbury. Faced with changing school
demographics and unspoken tensions between some
parents and faculty, Bott worked with YW Boston to
bring its Community Dialogues program to her school.
YW Boston conducted an intensive dialogue series
engaging more than 20 parents, teachers and
administrators. Bott is seeing positive change in her
school as a result: “YW Boston’s Community Dialogues
provided a forum for open, structured and safe
conversations about race, equity and the achievement
gap at the Mendell School. Parents built relationships
across racial/cultural groups. Now we see different
parents talking to each other during drop off/pick up.
New faces are attending Parent Council and becoming
engaged in school initiatives. Teachers heard the
experiences of parents in our community and were
able to reflect on steps they either are or could be
taking to create a more welcoming climate.”
Making Neighborhoods Safer
Sergeant Martin Joseph is a 26-year veteran of the Boston Police Department. For the
past two years Sgt. Joseph has participated in YW Boston’s Youth/Police Dialogue at the
English High School in an effort to reduce rising tension between the police and teens.
“Youth/Police Dialogues have given me the opportunity to give back to the community. I
believe that barriers exist between the youth and the police and the public in general. This
barrier appears to be even more prevalent in communities of color. Youth/Police Dialogues
break through this barrier and give the youth and police an opportunity to interact, discuss
and share different views in order to foster a better relationship. This in turn reduces or
dissolves stereotypes and misunderstanding, and allows the community and the police
to build trust.”
Saving Women’s Lives
With backing from her employer Neighborhood Health Plan, Carol Brown
is a key volunteer in YW Boston’s effort to increase women’s access to
health screenings. Brown, along with more than 60 of her colleagues,
reached out to more than 1,000 women who lapsed in obtaining their
annual checkups, through YW Boston’s Woman-to-Woman Breast
Health Phone-a-thons. “My sister died of breast cancer and I just
want to help someone else learn about the importance of having their
yearly mammogram. When a woman on the other end of the phone
line thanks me and tells me she is going to get her exam because of
my call, it brings tears to my eyes knowing that it might save her life.
Because of my loss, I am glad I can help somebody else.”
Empowering Future Leaders
Raymond C. is a Boston Latin School student and one of 30 members of
YW Boston’s inaugural Youth Leadership Initiative (InIt) class. Raymond
joined InIt to gain a better understanding of social justice issues and the role
he could play in addressing them in his high school. Following the program’s
intensive summer immersion, Raymond returned to school and founded
L.E.A.D (Leaders Engaged in Achieving the Dream), a social justice group.
“InIt has provided a whole new perspective on my life. I would have never
realized the extent of the problems we face and would have never taken
action. I believe that InIt has made a significant impact on my own personal
growth, and helped me take actions to improve my community.”
Thanks to the generosity of donors, YW Boston has made
great strides in advancing social, racial and gender equity.
