A weekly gathering of women from all over the world (including the USA) for friendship, information, education, support, and service. We gather for tea, coffee and snacks along with learning a new craft, trying a recipe together, or taking a field trip.  All women are welcome.

We hope that you will join us! For more information, contact Jenny  at jenny@vtymca.org.

English Conversation Classes

These weekly classes are for international community members who want to learn English or improve their English language skills. The classes will not only include simple writing tasks, pronunciation, and grammar, but it will also cover other diverse topics. Students can compare of life and customs in the U.S. to  their home countries, learning more about U.S. society and teaching their classmates about their own cultures. There are two class times, both held at the Y Center (1000 North Main Street), in the Art and Crafts Room. Classes are free and walk-ins are welcome!
