Recruiting Board Members
Our Vision is to build a nationwide community of female leaders who support, empower, and encourage one another to pursue their dreams by creating meaningful connections through mentorship relationships. Our program is a national initiative that provides mentorship to young women in high school. Mentors range from 20 - 30 years old. She Connects programs are inclusive to womxn/girls/gender non-conforming folks of all identities.
Our board is critical in promoting the vision of She Connects and advancing mentorship connections nationally. As She Connects is a working board and our organization has no paid staff, we work closely together to ensure the success of the organization as we continue to grow. Board members are passionate, qualified, and dedicated to volunteering their time for the advancement of women and girls in Canada.
