Outward Bound

In partnership and with the generous support of Outward Bound, the YWCA of Aotearoa New Zealand is able to offer fully subsidised places for young women to attend an Outward Bound course (although each young woman will need to fund her own travel to and from Picton).

The annual ‘YWCA Watch’ is open to all young women, aged 16-30 years, who are involved in the YWCA – from programme participants and volunteers through to board members.

With 14 places available each year, this dedicated ‘YWCA Watch’ provides an opportunity to reward young women who are already active in the YWCA Movement and strengthen the work they have done as part of a YWCA programme.

We are delighted to have achieved a full complement of young women representing the YWCA for our inaugural ‘Watch’ in January 2013.

To register your interest in future courses, please contact Kathryn Doughty or Steph Fink.

A huge thank you to YWCA Auckland for helping to make our enhanced partnership with Outward Bound a success!

Many thanks to all our funders, without their support we could not provide the important services we do.
