Mission Statement

Our mission is to touch lives and build better futures for women and their families through advocacy and integrated services that foster economic independence, wellness and equal opportunities.


We are one of Metro Vancouver's largest and most diversified non-profit organizations. Our holistic, integrated programs and services help lift women and families out of poverty, provide the best start for children and create new opportunities for education, employment and leadership.

YWCA Metro Vancouver Youth Education Programs need young men and women to be mentors, leaders and facilitators for Grade 7 students during a critical transition in their lives.

Volunteers in our ten-week programs help Grade 7 girls and boys with their transition to high school by building their confidence, encouraging them to make good decisions and promoting healthy relationship skills. Each program is led by a team of two college/university students, one to two high school students and a mature mentor.
