Indigenous Mentorship

Step into the YWCA Circle of Sisters Indigenous Mentorship program, where Indigenous girls, Two-Spirit, trans, and non-binary youth (ages 13 to 18) find connection within cultural teachings. Led by Indigenous mentors and supported by skilled facilitators, the program is a journey of cultural immersion and empowerment within the Indigenous community.
