Soroptimist International of Winnipeg is proud to be partnering with North Point Douglas Women’s Centre to offer programs of “Empowerment Training for Women & Girls.”  This has been made possible by a $5000 grant from Soroptimist International of the Americas and the Winnipeg Soroptimists.  The empowerment programs will include  workshops offered by staff in parenting, virtues development, non-violent conflict resolution and workshops offered by Soroptimist club members to  develop girls’ positive self-esteem and teen dating violence prevention.

Our YOWs partner with a variety of community organizations including Norquay School, Norquay Community Center, Boys and Girls Club, Graffiti Art Gallery,  Winnipeg Police Service and the City of Winnipeg.  Their summer activities include the Youth Employment Project, Community Gardening, Bike Rodeo, and the Austin Street Festival.
