Happy International Women’s Day

Leave a comment

What a BEAUTIFUL day! It’s 12 degrees out and SUNNY…a perfect combo for International Women’s Day. Of course everyday is International Women’s Day at YWCA Hamilton, but we’re pretty happy when the rest of the world joins us in celebrating women and girls 🙂

A lot of incredible things have been going on here at YWCA Hamilton. On Friday March 5th, we welcomed 200 high school girls for our annual Jill Rumble Totally Awesome Young Women’s Breakfast. It was a really fun and inspiring morning–complete with lots of engery and conspiring! Students planned new “challenges” or initiatives for to help make their schools and/or communities better for everyone. We had a fantastic student speaker who shared her story of volunteering and spoke about how volunteering has greatly impacted her life.

The Spectator wrote a great article about the event that you can see here!  

Today, the YWCA took part in the annual International Women’s Day event -coordinated by SACHA. We headed up the child minding and it was a blast!

Lots of photos to follow!
