Are you looking for a great partner to support your school with the youth challenges you face?
The YWCA adapts its services to help you address gender equality with young people, regardless of the context. We are closely monitoring the sanitary situation and we are happy to offer again our school workshops in person!
We also offer intervention tools and online activities to meet the needs of young people of diverse backgrounds. Whether as part of a workshop or a training, our team is ready to put its expertise at the service of your community.

PROMOTION OF GLOBAL HEALTH AND SEXUALITY EDUCATION
We invite young people to take charge of their own global health and adopt a healthy lifestyle. As part of our workshops, students will learn more about the different dimensions of health.
This year, our educational activities will allow them to make informed choices regarding their relationships and their sexuality. Our program explores themes such as peer pressure, nuances of consent and sexual consent, signs of a healthy or unhealthy relationship and many other issues related to young people’s sexuality.
If you need to discuss further and address sexual violence and, more specifically, sexual exploitation, we offer prevention tools to increase awareness and prepare young people to identify and avoid risks.
ACGC AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP
In order to build a more equal future for young people, we encourage them to identify the effects of gender stereotypes on their career choices. Nowadays, we still notice a strong segregation based on gender as much in post-secondary educational choices as in the labor market. For example, 90% of women are working in just 300 types of jobs!
To help building a more egalitarian employment ecosystem for all people, we’ve created the new website Un métier à mon image (only available in French for the moment). This platform offers a large repertoire of tools, training, videos, activities and references to promote a non-gendered approach on educational and vocational guidance.
This year, our Academic and Career Guidance Content (ACGC) workshops also focus on entrepreneurship, allowing young people to deconstruct myths about this profession option. In addition, our intensive trainings encourage girls and non-binary people to identify their strengths and bring their ideas to life.
