An Opportunity to Make a Difference

YW Calgary is dedicated to supporting women and their families through programs and services like shelter, counselling, childcare, language instruction and employment support. Our mission is to intervene, empower and lead where and when women need us most. Our team brings together expertise from diverse backgrounds to give our clients the help and advocacy they need during times of crisis or transition and ongoing support as they work towards their goals.

We work to support women thriving in a safe and equitable community. To achieve that mission, we need passionate warriors and advocates who want to transform social issues and empower people to use their voices. If that sounds like you, take a look at our current opportunities or email us to find out more.

Thank you for making change happen

Volunteers are an integral part of the community and YW Calgary thanks each and every volunteer for their commitment to our mission and vision. In 2019, 132 volunteers contributed more than 3,900 hours to support women and their families at YW Calgary.
