Mentorship Program: WE-WIL

We are not currently taking applications. The next intake is March 2018.

WE WIL: Women Empowering Women Into Leadership is a capacity-building leadership and empowerment program, designed for women who face barriers to employment and education. Participants not only gain new skills and qualifications, but also learn in a supportive environment where the skills and knowledge they already possess are honoured. 

The program supports participants to gain:

  • life skills
  • confidence
  • an increased awareness of community resources
  • an understanding of anti-oppression, inclusion, and advocacy approaches
  • training in asset mapping, goal setting, job searching, interpersonal communication and other soft skills
  • a certificate upon successful completion that looks great on job applications!

Participants who successfully complete the program are eligible to apply for a 6-month mentorship position within our Centre, which can be renewed up to 18 months. These mentorship positions includes work experience, ongoing training opportunities, wrap around support and a monthly honorarium.

WE WIL is offered twice a year, in the spring and fall.

For more, please contact our Director of Mentorship at mentorship@wcwrc.ca or 204-774-8975 ext. 203.
