uPLIFT: a brand new Reskilling Program in cambridge

Advancing employment opportunities in our community

YWCA Cambridge’s newest program Uplift Reskilling Program provides women and non-binary people 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.


Applications are now closed for Cohort 2. Thank you to all who applied.

Course Overview:

Today’s business environment is fast-paced and constantly evolving. Stay on top by choosing a career that’s always in demand. Studies have shown that those who invest in project management training deliver higher quality results using fewer resources.

Add more versatility and value to your career with project management!
