Get Ready to Rise

YWCA Hamilton is excited to re-launch the Rise & Shine Young Trailblazers breakfast in honour of the RISE Collective, a youth-led collective that centres and amplifies the voices of young women, non-binary, and gender fluid youth in Hamilton and Halton.

This year is very special for YWCA Hamilton’s Rise & Shine Young Trailblazer’s Breakfast as we partner with the 110th Grey Cup Festival to deliver an empowering and engaging program focused on equity, diversity and inclusion within sports.

We believe that sport is for everyone; regardless of their gender, age, race, culture, religion, sexual orientation or ability.

This special edition event will provide youth with the unique opportunity to hear directly from trailblazers and advocates in the sport industry through a compelling keynote, speakers’ panel, and will provide young women, non-binary and gender fluid youth with the tools and resources to advocate for inclusive sport within their schools and communities.
