ROLE: EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, Women’s Centre of York Region (WCYR) - MATERNITY LEAVE 1-YEAR CONTRACT
WCYR is a non-profit organization that works with women in two ways: firstly, women who need support and counselling on a range of issues such as safety from domestic violence. Secondly, women seeking skills and knowledge to enhance participation in the economy – women who are unemployed or underemployed, have low levels of financial literacy or who want to start a business to move off social assistance or low- paying employment.
Our goal is for women to increase their capacity to participate in their community and the economy. Through our programs, women gain the skills and knowledge to build and maintain healthy interpersonal relationships, make decisions about their finances, gain access to income and employment, go back to school and take on leadership roles.
We do this through programs including individual and transitional support counselling, life skills, financial literacy, wellness, and career exploration.
