About Our Technology Classes and Training Services
The purpose of the YWCA Computer Center is to ensure that all people, especially women and girls, have access to computer technology that is often necessary for success at work, school, and home.

What People Say About Our Technology Classes
“I am so happy to have instructors teach to my level. I was able to ask questions to make sure I understood. I was happy to have questions from a previous class answered if I have problems applying at my job site.”
“I loved, loved, loved this class! I have learned so much and want to know so much more. Thanks for your patience and for sharing your expertise. I haven’t felt “connected” to anything since I moved here eight years ago. This ‘YWCA Experience’ has helped me in so many ways. [My instructor was] so professional and well-prepared. You’re the best!”
