The YWCA Future Leaders programme is an individualised leadership programme providing young women with skills development, new experiences and opportunities to support them in achieving their goals, the programme is for four years. YWCA Programme Facilitators are dedicated to coordinating and supporting the students on the programme. Facilitators work through themes, which are created to build their confidence and leadership skills. Each student is given an opportunity to attend a self-development leadership camp of up to 2 nights per year. Our vision is to empower young women to become capable and confident leaders in society, acting as role models for other young people and taking their leadership skills back into their homes and communities.
