    Our Glasgow Centre, based in the East End, runs learning programmes for women who are looking for a supportive pathway into further study or work. YWCA Scotland is a feminist organisation and part of a worldwide young women's movement. We encourage girls and young women to challenge inequality and become their own leaders. Founded over 150 years ago, YWCA originally stood for the Young Women's Christian Association. In Scotland, the movement is now simply called 'YWCA' and we are open to women of all faiths and none. We run Computer/IT classes, ESOL classes, Social Groups and an Empowering Pathways programme. If anyone is interested in our classes/courses, please contact us or pop in to the Glasgow Centre to find out more.
