YWCA Canada’s Think Big Start Small is a civic engagement and leadership program for young women between 16 and 29 years of age. Funded by Canadian Heritage under the Youth Take Charge stream, the program provides young women with opportunities to enhance their leadership skills, build community and become agents of change while improving their connection to their community and Canada. YWCAs and YMCA-YWCAs serving 14 communities across the country have established youth councils for young women, giving them space to engage in their community and develop a strong public voice. Young women are invited to coordinate rallies, events, workshops, online features, and all kinds of creative actions. The goal is to raise awareness about the power of young women to address key issues and improve our communities.
