EDUCATION AND TRAINING
The YWCA Christchurch Inc. has as an overall purpose of empowering and motivating those with least access to resources and those who have no or low qualifications yet seek the foundation and vocational skills that will contribute to sustainable life long learning, employment and nationally recognised qualifications.
We are committed to honouring Te Tiriti O Waitangi and its women's heritage that spans now across three centuries.
As an all women Provider it will provide a role model of high quality leadership, citizenship, fiscal responsibility, and education opportunities as well as informed advocacy, good employment relations and wise mentoring for women and especially for young women.
