Prevention and Empowerment Services

Girls BE U

Girls: Building Empowerment and Uniqueness (Girls BE U) is an empowerment group offered to McLean County junior high and high school girls which allows them to explore their own unique and positive qualities through an open and creative curriculum.



YWCA Labyrinth Outreach Services to Women offers reintegration services to formerly incarcerated women residing in McLean County. The overall vision is to significantly reduce recidivism. Labyrinth addresses the needs of women released from the Illinois Department of Corrections and McLean County jail who are returning to the community. We help rebuild each woman’s dignity and nurture her growth as she develops the attitudes and skills required for productive, independent living.
