Our program focuses on three foundational pillars; mentorship, empowerment, and leadership. We believe in promoting the skill development of young women in our community and we strive to provide valuable opportunities for them. We also aim to shape the future ambassadors of Kelowna, and to provide bursaries for the young women crowned to further support their education and development.
Throughout the program, there are five judged events that allow our candidates to showcase their learning and development from the beginning to the end.
Speech and Talent Night
The candidates and current ambassadors also attend and participate in numerous community events throughout the year.
Throughout the program, there are weekly training sessions that focus on a variety of topics. Public speaking, etiquette, self-confidence, time management, area knowledge, and networking are some of the key elements we focus on during training.
