Young Women’s Leadership Program

10 July 2020

Capital Region Community Services is proud to offer a free, Young Women’s Leadership program, starting in Term 3.

The program is open to young women and gender diverse persons in the Canberra Region who would like to make friends and explore topics relevant to young women in a fun, safe and welcoming environment.

The content of the program will largely be shaped by its participants and is designed to build confidence and skills. Topics such as communication, mental health, body confidence and careers will be covered.

The program will run for eight weeks in a small group of 10-12 participants and will be facilitated by experienced youth workers at Belconnen Youth Centre.

If you are a young woman or gender diverse person looking to build your confidence and leadership skills, get in touch with our facilitators for more information and to set up a meeting.
