Donations to support VSW's Leadership Empowerment Activism Program (LEAP)
are welcome and appreciated ($5-20 sliding scale); no one turned away for
lack of funds.
The Leadership Empowerment Activism Program (LEAP) is a FREE 18-month
program of Vancouver Status of Women that offers training and mentorship
in anti-oppression, community organizing, transformative leadership, popular
education, creative expression and group facilitation to womyn facing
multiple systemic barriers including colonialism, racism, poverty,
disability, LGBTQ identity and single motherhood.
Due to the immense response that we received from the community in terms of need for this program, we have taken on more participants than originally planned. We need more resources to offer adequate accessibility provisions for our participants and their children (food, bus tickets, stipends, children's materials).
If you are interested in volunteering with LEAP, please get in touch with
Cynthia Oka, LEAP Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-255-6554.
Exciting volunteer opportunities include participation in our (revolutionary!) child care and fundraising committees, as well as developing skills in logistical and administrative support.
