YWCA Seeks Board Directors and Other Volunteers: Dynamic Women Who Want to Make a Difference in the Lives of Women and Children

YWCA Peterborough Haliburton is seeking volunteers to join the Board of Directors and Board committees.

We are looking for volunteers who are passionate about women’s issues and have the desire to be involved with an organization that provides life-saving programs, tools and resources that help women and children thrive. The YWCA plays a vital role in our community and its sustainability depends on women who will make impactful decisions in support of our mission: YWCA Peterborough Haliburton exists to help women and children in our communities live safely, eat well and know satisfaction and joy in their daily lives. We offer shelter, educational programming, counselling, and advocacy, in collaboration with the community and women themselves. The YWCA knows that its fiscal management, community reputation and most importantly, valued staff are the basis for these trusting relationships.”

– Sherri Ireland, YWCA Peterborough Haliburton Board President

As a learning board, we offer the opportunity to share our experience with those who may be new to Board governance. We know the value of having varied skillsets and experiences, and are particularly interested in the areas of nominating, finance, truth and reconciliation and governance. As an organization, we will always be committed to ensuring a diverse perspective, one that reflects the communities we serve.”

– Crystal Dudgeon, Nominating Committee Chair
