The YWCA of Hamilton is committed to empowering young women within the wider community of women to make positive choices in order to affect social change.

We believe this goal is only attainable through proactive initiatives, which is why we make a commitment to young women’s leadership through training and support through scholarships, awards and programmes, such as Y-Dub and self defence .


The YWCA of Hamilton is offering free Money Savvy programmes to your school! Learn about how to save, budgeting and loads more!
