We encourage aspiring scholars and professionals to live big and lead now. We're proud to award scholarships annually. An initiative made possible by our members and supporters. A portion of membership fees goes directly to funding these awards to give back to ambitious women who are driven to make a change and lead in their industries and communities.

The VMW Mentorship Program connects driven women with professional women into a 6-month one on one (minimum one hour per month) professional development and educational mentorship journey.
The program is open to all girls and women. VMW actively aims to encourage Muslim women to use our platforms to become visible role models for Muslim and non-Muslim girls in Vancouver and around the world. All mentors and mentees need to apply below to be accepted into the program and attend a mandatory training orientation if accepted. Mentorship activities may include coffee, dinner, high tea, social and professional events, networking conferences, job shadowing and more.
Mentorship Spring Dates: January 15th, 2020 - June 15th, 2021
