This project is open to all youth who are 14 to 29 years of age who will come together over the next 2 months to plan and deliver a YWCA Day event.

This is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, have fun and learn about the incredible contributions women have made in Canada. All activities, events and transportation will be covered.

Time commitment:

  • 3 meetings which will be 1.5 hours each or less
  • 1 Field Trip or guest speaker (chosen by the youth)
  • 1 YWCA Day Event held before March 31st, 2017 (completely planned by youth)

Please email Ashley Bonner at or call 705-743-3526 x 129  to sign up.

This project is generously supported by YWCA Canada and Canadian Heritage.
