Young Indigenous Women's Circle of LeadershipExciting Changes to the Indigenous Young Women’s Circle of Leadership (YIWCL) Program!

Dear friends of YIWCL,

We are thrilled to announce some exciting changes coming to the program this year! After careful consideration and feedback, we are moving away from our traditional 3- week-long summer day camp to a new format of year-round pop-up gatherings.

What does this mean for you?

Here’s what you can look forward to:

1. **Year-Round Engagement**: Instead of just a week in the summer, we will now be hosting pop-up gatherings throughout the year. This means more opportunities for the young women to stay engaged, learn, and have fun with us beyond the summer months.

2. **Flexibility and Variety**: Our pop-up gatherings will be more flexible and diverse in content. From outdoor adventures to arts and crafts, STEM activities to community service projects, each gathering will offer something unique and exciting.

3. **Local and Accessible**: These gatherings will take place in various locations around our community, making them more accessible to families. You can find us popping up at parks, schools, community centers, and other local venues.

4. **Continuity and Connection**: By extending our program throughout the year, we aim to build stronger relationships with our participants. Your children will have the opportunity to connect with familiar faces and build lasting friendships.

5. **Special Events and Themes**: Keep an eye out for special themed gatherings and events! Whether it’s a holiday celebration, a nature exploration day, or a creative workshop, there will always be something exciting happening. We understand that change can be both exciting and challenging, but we believe that this shift will allow us to better serve our community and provide more enriching experiences for your children.

Stay tuned for updates on our upcoming pop-up gatherings schedule. We can’t wait to embark on this new adventure with you all.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Thank you for being a part of our youth program family.

Warm regards,

YIWCL Council
