Women’s Leadership Council

Our Women’s Leadership Council is a group of like-minded women investing in projects positively affecting the youth of Simcoe Muskoka. Women’s Leadership Council engages the influence and dedication of women to transform local communities.

WLC members engage:

  • To volunteer alongside others looking to create positive social change.
  • To network and collaborate with key business and community leaders.
  • To learn more about critical issues impacting our local communities.
  • To be part of a community of like-minded women who contribute their unique strengths to building stronger communities.
  • To advocate for key community issues at the local, provincial and national levels.

Inaugural WLC grants fund new mental-health supports for Simcoe Muskoka youth

In 2016, our Women’s Leadership Council invested in regional youth mental health. As a result, two local charities now offer additional youth supports while filling a critical gap.

LIVE LIFE TO THE FULL: CMHA YORK & SOUTH SIMCOE Throughout the 2016/2017 school year, South Simcoe secondary students are learning “new ways of dealing with what life throws at you.” Georgian College Social Service Worker students support this interactive, eight-session program.

QUEST: YWCA MUSKOKA Gravenhurst’s grade 9/10 boys recently completed a 10-week QUEST to explore individual strengths, build life skills, develop positive peer relations, and learn coping skills.
