Proceeds from the event will be donated to the following YWCA Metro Vancouver programs:

  • High School Mentorship – Since 1991, the YWCA High School Mentorship program has provided over 1,000 young women with mentors to help them explore career and education options, learn leadership and life skills, gain a positive role model and be better prepared for their futures. The program matches Grade 11 and 12 female students (mentees) with volunteer professional women (mentors) in a one-to-one mentoring relationship. The program engages, educates and motivates girls to acquire the knowledge and confidence to pursue the career of their interest.
  • Welcome to My LifeTM is an after-school program offered at selected elementary schools in Vancouver to help Grade 7 girls with their transition to high school. Through activities such as games, small group discussions, skits and a community service learning project, students explore a variety of topics including self-esteem, healthy lifestyles, peer and family relationships and internet safety. For each program, two university/college students, one High School Mentor and one mature volunteer, known as a Wisdom ChampionTM Mentor, are present to both facilitate and deliver the program, as well as share stories, personal experiences and provide advice.

YWCA Metro Vancouver provides a range of integrated services for women and their families and those seeking to improve the quality of their lives. From early learning and care to housing, health and fitness, employment services and leadership, YWCA Metro Vancouver touches lives in our communities.
