Here’s some info about YWCA Edmonton and how they transform the lives of young girls and women in need…

Established in 1907, YWCA Edmonton is the oldest and largest women’s social service organization in Canada. At its core, YWCA Edmonton’s mission is to educate, empower and inspire women and families by advancing their wellbeing and growth through life-changing services.

YWCA Edmonton works tirelessly to build a more fair and inclusive environment by creating “lasting change, influencing public policy, empowering people to stand up for social justice and foster healthy, equitable communities.”1

Other key aims include ending gender-based violence and fostering leadership in women and girls.

YWCA Edmonton – How they help

YWCA Edmonton’s mission of fighting for a more equitable future by lifting up young girls and women includes:

  • Providing affordable counseling services and mental health support to young girls and women of lower incomes
  • Fostering the development of young girls aged 11 to 18 by providing them with a safe space where they are taught critical thinking skills and equipped with the knowledge they need to become the leaders of tomorrow
  • Organizing healing weekend retreats for children and adult victims of domestic violence
  • Providing crucial sexual health and reproductive rights education to children and adults
  • Supporting people with disabilities

Notable programs: GirlSpace, Lakeside Haven, Camp Yowochas

What people say about YWCA Edmonton:

“The YWCA’s counseling services are an extraordinary blessing for women who are struggling, at a time when benefits and access to health care are not universal. You pay what you can. The staff are excellent, trained professionals and the structure of their programming allows up to 10 visits with an individual counsellor.

The YWCA also has amazing girl power programs!.”2Jennifer P.

“It is hard to describe a typical day at work because one day can be very predictable and then comes the days where nothing in your job gets done because you are helping someone else. A very team oriented workplace culture where everyone is helping everyone else. I learned so much at the YWCA Edmonton.”3from a former YWCA Edmonton employee

“Yowochas camp taught me that it’s all about working with a team… that it’s all about trust. When I was doing rock climbing we had a team of seven or eight people holding me up, plus the teachers, so I was pretty confident. So it’s really all about trusting and knowing that the people around you will support you. This is by far the best camp I’ve ever been to!”4from a young member of YWCA Edmonton’s Yowochas camp

“The YWCA is the reason I’m alive today. When I first walked into the Counselling Centre, I had run out of reasons to live. I had no money to afford help.

I was lucky to find the YWCA.”5 from a YWCA Edmonton member

Giving Generously 2021 – Our Social Responsibility Campaign

People helping people is how we deliver better business insurance. ALIGNED is known for consistently delivering a better insurance experience to Canadian businesses. Each and every day, we do this by:

  • Being fiercely independent – our brokerage is 100% owned by us, not by any insurance company 
  • Doing what we say we’re going to do when we say we’re going to do it
  • Fulfilling our social responsibility to help others

Since 2014, we’ve donated to more than 40 Canadian charities through our social responsibility initiatives. We know it’s a privilege to handle our clients’ insurance needs and that’s why GIVING frequently, consistently and GENEROUSLY is essential to all of us.

Each year, a portion of ALIGNED Insurance profits are donated to a Canadian charity that is nominated by an ALIGNED client. During the Giving Generously campaign, people vote by visiting web pages that ALIGNED builds to celebrate each charity and the great work they do. 

Our annual Giving Generously donation is made to the registered Canadian charity that receives the most “votes” which are recorded as web page sessions.

If you have any questions about Giving Generously or would like to know more about how an ALIGNED Insurance Advocate can get you connected with better business insurance, simply email assistants@alignedinsurance.com.
