After celebrating amazing women in our communities with our “Bada55 Women of the North” project and our “Passion to Purpose” event, YWCA NWT is extending the Young Women’s Leadership Council to highlight Canadian women’s history, culture, and heritage! We meet for fun outings, create e-portfolios, & meet Women of Distinction.
This is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, have fun, and learn about the incredible contributions women have made to Canada.
Who Can Join?
Currently, the Council is open to young women (including trans women/gender non-conforming/non-binary/femme people) who are 14 to 29 years of age.
Council activities and events are eligible for “CALM” hours. Sharpen your leadership skills with causes YOU care about! YWCA Days will be created and delivered by the Council! But don’t worry, you will have a dedicated YWCA staff member to support the Council along the way! As well, YWCA NWT pays for all activities and events. We can pay for transportation if it is a financial hindrance!
• 1 Youth Council meeting a month (2.5 hours each or less), which includes:
• Youth Council Field Trips (chosen by the Youth Council).
• 1 YWCA Days Event held before March 31st, 2017 (determined by Youth Council).
Please email Amanda Kanbari at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 867 920 2777 ext. 313 if you are interested in joining the Council.
