Commitment to Young Women

Our Commitment: Leadership. Empowerment. Self Esteem.

Since our inception, YWCA has been a movement driven by young women's energy, skills, resources, intelligence and passion. We are an organization that engages young women at both the programming and leadership levels.

Our girls’ programs serve over 25,000 across the country each year and each individual YWCA Member Association board is committed to being comprised of at least 25% young women aged 30 or younger when appointed.

National Programs

Since 2005, YWCA Canada has, in collaboration with our Member Associations, initiated two ongoing signature Turning Point Programs™ for girls and young women: YWCA GirlSpace and the Power of Being a Girl™.
