We build leaders

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.

At YWCA Canada we enhance young women’s leadership by providing a platform to stretch beyond comfort levels, practice leadership skills and to raise their voices on the issues they identify as important.
