uPLIFT: a brand new Reskilling Program in cambridge

Advancing employment opportunities in our community
Uplift registration is currently full. Please check back for our next session in mid-November 2021.

YWCA Cambridge’s newest program Uplift (formerly Reskilling Program) provides women and gender diverse individuals the opportunity to reskill or upskill in the advanced manufacturing and specialized technology fields through certification training and additional supports related to job development and navigating traditionally male-dominated workplaces.

Uplift participants  will have access to certification training with a provincially recognized institution. After certification, YWCA staff will assist participants to achieve better employment and to prepare their job skills through activities such as mock interviews and resume-building.

Our Program Partners

We are proud to offer this program in partnership with FedDev Ontario, The University of Guelph and Brescia University College – Western University.
Certification trainings focusing on the advanced manufacturing and specialized technology fields will be offered through this program. Training fees for participants are generously covered by FedDev Ontario.
