Round the Bays – Check
We did it yayyy (sighs heard around the finish line!!!) Massive pat on the back, high 5s, and cheers to all those people who supported/ walked/ ran/ crawled to help YWCA Auckland. We appreciate all that you gave us whether you participated or donated.
If you saw us at the event and thought “now that looks like a team I want to support” or just want to show some love to YWCA Auckland it isn’t too late to donate.
You can support our awesome Future Leaders and their mentors by clicking here. We were all young women once – take the opportunity to support their potential. The Future Leaders programme gives young women the tools to blossom into leaders of tomorrow.
Side Note: As the end of the financial year approaches, don’t forget you can claim back a third of your donation.
It’s Y Day!!!! Bold and trans-formative leadership
On the 24th April we celebrate YWCA day around the world. On this day we appreciate the women who have laid down foundations for us and look to the new bold era of women to create pathways for the next generation.
Do you remember when you were a young woman, and someone saying they appreciated you (awards and achievements don’t count)? We can go through much of our younger life without really being appreciated and this is a pivotal stage in our lives. In today’s world we are constantly competing; competing for the job, the guy, the status. We forget to appreciate each other, we forget to look back and realise that someone new is beginning this journey.
So here’s the challenge: The theme of this day is bold and transformative leadership. On 24th April be bold enough to lead the movement. Turn to a young women (not just those you know) and say I appreciate you, you matter.
