2018 ANNUAL REPORT YWCA MUSKOKA champions positive change for women and girls through education, leadership and advocacy a message from the board chair and executive director It is an honour to share the work we do and the YWCA we love and are so passionate about.  This organization is built on shared leadership, strategic thinking, growing community relationships, and developing responses through diverse programs that address the needs of women and youth. In 2018, our Board deepened its knowledge through dialogue and developed stronger plans for risk management, business continuity, fund development and succession planning. We embarked on a journey to find the 18 women who founded the Community YWCA of Muskoka and presented them with the Maggie Ringling Award to recognize their legacy. The Muskoka Women in Film Festival marked its 8th year on International Womens’ Day screening Canadian films, including Keep Talking, a story about indigenous youth recovering pride and heritage through language, to high school youth and to community members.  We are all living in a world that is experiencing a heightened level of violence, racism, and collective anxiety.  Volunteering, meditation, knitting groups, Circles® and multicultural dinners are bringing people together from different backgrounds. New Millennial staff are bringing passion, fresh ideas and perspectives to our growing organization. Women’s programs are focused on wellness and building better business models, while providing one- on-one supports. Advocacy and communications is becoming increasing important.  THANK YOU for taking the time to read and listen, to learn and be involved in the actions that create positive change for women and girls, and by proximity, for all of us. We thank YWCA staff, members, participants, volunteers, partners and donors who believe like we do, that we make a difference together.
