Giving Tuesday: Give the gift of joy to TechGYRLS

With each holiday season, YWCA NETN and SWVA’s TechGYRLS have the opportunity to shop, and for some this is something that doesn’t happen often. This experience is given to each young girl, and throughout the experience they are taught valuable budgeting lessons. For some, this will be a highlight of their Christmas season, and they look forward to it year-round.

With the season of giving upon us, you can give the gift of joy to those middle school girls in the TechGYRLS program this Giving Tuesday. Girls like Nichole, who when asked what joy meant to her and how the program brought her joy said,  “To me, joy means an unbreakable happiness. When you walk into TechGYLRS, it’s just like you are never going to be judged. That is such a confidence booster, because sometimes you need a good environment where you’re accepted”.

This Giving Tuesday, November 29th, YWCA NETN and SWVA will host a Facebook fundraiser and donations can also be made by going to our website at We hope you will consider giving the gift of joy to TechGYRLS this holiday season!
