YWCA’s Shades of Leadership

Join us to celebrate female-identified youth of color who are leading the way in our community at Shades of Leadership, an annual benefit for YWCA GirlsFirst.

Featuring a champagne reception, dinner by Tom Douglas Catering, presentation of the 2017 GirlsFirst Youth Awards, and remarks from Keleghai (Kiki) Tatah Mentan from Red-Tailed Hawks Flying Club and Black Pilots of America.

YWCA GirlsFirst encourages leadership, instills confidence, develops skills, and provides opportunities to over 140 female-identified youth of color in Seattle and King County each year. This empowering program helps build social, emotional, and academic skills through community-building activities, STEAM-based education (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math), and professional summer internships.
