A comprehensive program to strengthen young women’s leadership
Think Big Lead Now Young Women’s National Leadership Program is a comprehensive bilingual leadership program. It includes online learning sessions and talks, self-study, peer mentorship and support, and civic engagement activities along with a three-day immersive training and networking summit.
Grounded in intersectional feminism and social justice, this program has been designed to equip young women with the knowledge and skills to lead and be change-makers in their communities and beyond.
YWCA Canada works on the belief that the best method for strengthening young women’s leadership is to provide participants with new experiences that allow them to stretch beyond their comfort level, enhance their skills through practice and enable them to reflect on the experience. Young leaders will develop an understanding of the nature of social change and their capacity to effect change through their actions and work ahead to achieve through the program components described on YWCA Canada’s website.
Think Big Lead Now Young Women’s National Leadership Program is taking place from December 2017 to June 2018 and is divided into several types of activities:
- E-learning presentations & workshops
- Peer mentorship & support
- Leadership Training Summit (3 days)
- Young Women Community Action Days
