Offer: ACOSS & YWCA Young Women’s Bursary Package

For the first time ever, YWCA Australia is proud to announce a special offer for YWCA young woman members – a joint bursary with Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) to attend their national conference in Canberra!

What is on offer?

The ACOSS & YWCA Young Women’s Bursary Package is offering 25 complimentary registrations to the 2019 ACOSS National Conference to YWCA young woman advocates (30 years and under) – this is your chance to save up to $1000 on general admission costs!

The conference will be held from 26 to 27 November, at the National Convention Centre in Canberra.

The 2019 theme is Harnessing Community for Effective Action, and is about exploring the ways in which the power of community can be harnessed to drive systemic change at the local and national level. This theme will be interwoven through the conference keynotes, master classes, policy forums and workshops.
