We can all play a part in supporting survivors and preventing violence in the St. Joseph community. Each year, the YWCA carries out its critical mission, utilizing the talents and expertise of hundreds of volunteer hours. Join us and become part of the change.

Women of Excellence

Since 2001, the start of summer has brought hundreds of community leaders, volunteers and members of the business community together to celebrate the accomplishments of women in numerous roles.

Throughout the year, the YWCA fulfills its mission with the help of several corporate and community partners. We sincerely appreciate their support, time and resources as we work to empower women and families and eliminate racism.

We are excited to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Sara Beth Myers. Sara is from St. Joseph and obtained her undergrad at Duke, her Master’s at Yale, and later going to law school at Vanderbilt. She began volunteering in a street law program. During that year, Sara worked with survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence. Sara is currently an Assistant United States Attorney, the founder and Chairman of the Board of AWAKE: Advocates for Women’s and Kids’ Equality. Her passion to help others and her drive is sure to inspire us all!
