YWCA of Hamilton
YWCA is a leading voice for women, girls, Two-Spirit and gender diverse people.
For 150 years, YWCA has been at the forefront of a movement: to fight gender-based violence, build affordable housing and advocate for workplace equity.
The YWCA’s Uplift Program provides women and non-binary people the opportunity to enhance and acquire skills and knowledge to enter the information and cybersecurity field through certification training with a provincially recognized educational institution and supports related to job development and pre-employment skills. Training fees for participants are covered by FedDev Ontario. The YWCA Uplift staff will assist program participants to achieve better employment and navigate traditionally male-dominated workplaces.
