Jaime Stacy

It is through our valued partnership with Jaime Stacy and SWAG that we can bring Transformations Camp back to the Spokane community. Jaime has done an incredible job of lifting up and supporting young people in our community through her work at Garry and Shaw Middle Schools and at Rogers High School. 

Jaime believes

“The health of our community depends on the health of the next generation of leaders. I believe in equipping, empowering, and mentoring as a means of prevention; diligently and consistently advocating for enriching experiences that increase human value in our communities. Belonging; our youth belong here. It’s time to create space for them to grow.”

Strong Women Achieving Greatness (SWAG)

SWAG is a mentoring community for girls and young women coming together, a village; a bridge that connects them to their own path towards greatness. Through mentorship, SWAG helps girls and young women to establish a pattern of success that defies statistics and stereotypes. Mentors bring experience, perspective, and objectivity into the mentoring relationship, while helping participants reach their goals and aspirations, which is inclusive of social, emotional, and academic learning. The three components of SWAG are: building relationships, identity, and pursuing success. 

About SWAG

The History of Transformations Camp

Regina Malveaux, previous CEO of YWCA Spokane, began the Transformations Camp program in 2014 in response to a growing request for support with self-esteem and identity issues from young women of color. The camp grew with success each year until 2019.

After taking a two-year break due to the pandemic, we were proud to bring this camp back in 2022 through a new partnership with Jaime Stacy and SWAG (Strong Women Achieving Greatness). The relaunch of the camp was such a success, we decided to host two camps each summer starting in 2023!

It has been an exciting journey of growth and transformation!

Thank you Jim!
