2024 YWCA Cortland Events

Annual Until Justice Just Is (previously Stand Against Racism) / January, February, March, April 2024 / YWCA and virtual
We continue participation in YWCA USA’s national Until Justice Just Is (formerly known as the Stand Against Racism) initiative. We will include a 21-day Racial Justice Challenge for the third year, with virtual learning activities presented each weekday for four weeks in April. For the first time, we will also offer a four-week Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation training course in February, with a preview demo on MLK Jr. Day. We have added a second course scheduled for the second weekend in March. A celebration for those completing this nonviolence training is planned for April 1; more details to come. This initiative aims to raise awareness about YWCA’s work to eliminate racism and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Proceeds benefit all YWCA Cortland programs.

22nd Annual Girls Day Out / Saturday, March 9, 2024 / Tompkins Cortland Community College
Taking place for the second year at Tompkins Cortland Community College, Girls Day Out provides a special day of activities designed to engage, motivate, and build confidence in our community’s young female leaders. About 100 young women, ages 11-14, will participate in STEAM activities and team-building exercises. They will also attend an interactive career fair and health education sessions focused on confidence building. Proceeds benefit the Health & Fitness program.

22nd Annual Pig-n-Par Golf Tournament / Friday, August 2, 2024 / Willowbrook Golf Club
Each year, 100+ community members tee off to support the crucial programs and services of YWCA Cortland. By providing sponsorship funding for this event, your business makes it possible for all proceeds raised during the event to stay in Cortland County to benefit the local community.

The Chefs Take a Stand Against Domestic Violence event will return to The Lookout at Hope Lake for the third year.
