Applications are open for the Young Women of Excellence Mentorship opportunity
Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 3:10PM

We are once again offering an exciting mentorship opportunity through the Young Women of Excellence Mentorship. Up to 80 young women in grades 11 and 12 will be able to attend the 2019 YMCA Women of Excellence Gala FREE OF CHARGE.

This is an amazing opportunity to connect with post-secondary school females (mentors), interact with each other and the mentors, and chat with the 2019 Young Woman of Excellence award winner. The goal is for these young women to learn from the mentors, ask any questions they may have and ideally help them visualize their own paths to success. The mentors all have a variety of backgrounds, specializing in many different areas such as engineering, teaching, health & sciences, sports, human resources, and more.

For well over 25 years, inspirational women have been honoured at the YMCA Women of Excellence Gala.  A central part of this event is our Young Women of Excellence Mentorship opportunity.  Proceeds from the Women of Excellence Gala go towards the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign supporting youth who would not otherwise be able to participate in YMCA camps and programs. 

If you know of a young woman in your school, in grade 11 or 12, please ask them to submit the following to:
