Programs

Creative Circle – Will resume in September

Monday afternoons, from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, women gather  at the Antigonish Women’s Resource Centre to knit, crochet, weave and do other various crafts while meeting with new women and form lasting friendships.  The creative circle is a free program with some supplies to get you started on a new hobby.

Income Tax Preparation Program for Low-Income Women – March

The Income Tax Preparation Programs provides support to low-income women and family members needing help with preparing their income tax returns. The returns are completed by volunteers. In situations where the return requires expertise beyond that of the volunteers, the Women’s Centre will make a referral to another service.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Women’s Centre encourages women to get involved in its work. Through meeting with other women and through volunteer work at the Women’s Centre, many women have made positive changes in their lives. Women mentor other women and model assertiveness, positive self-esteem and healthy attitudes towards problem-solving and goal setting. Volunteering at the Women’s Centre helps women develop the confidence they may need to pursue education and employment goals. Volunteers are required to participate in a volunteer orientation and training session that prepares them for the tasks they are undertaking. Volunteers help with office support, library maintenance, and fundraising.
