Happy Holidays from your WYA family!

2018 would not have been a successful year for WYA without you! With your help, we continue to reach young people with our central mission: to promote the dignity of the human person. To all our members, alumni, and friends, thank you for a fruitful 2018!


A Big WYA Thank You for Giving!

Last Nov. 27, WYA was able to raise over $7,000 for Giving Tuesday. With a goal of $5,000, we were able to surpass this even before #GivingTuesday began! This would not be possible without your help. Thank you to everyone who continue to support WYA’s mission in giving their talents and resources! If you missed Giving Tuesday, you’re still welcome to give WYA a year end gift!
