Documents concerning the YWCA of Youngstown, Ohio and its branches. Visitation reports, continued from the previous reel, describe and assess the association's program, leadership, activities, facilities and services. Also included are correspondence relating to the YMCA in Youngstown and advisory correspondence with regional and national leaders. The YWCA operates two branches in addition to its central association. The Belmont Branch of the YWCA of Youngstown serves the African American girls and women of the community. Its functions and relationship to the central association are established in its bylaws and reports of interracial practices within the association evaluate the policies and practices throughout the association that deal with matters of diversity and race. The association's international institute is a club for the YWCA of Youngstown's immigrant women and their families.
