We always welcome new members to join us in our social and fundraising activities.
Present members who wish to become further involved in the activities and the running of YLCE are invited to approach the committee chairmen directly. Below is an outline of each committee activity.
The Awards Committee of nine members considers applications from women seeking help in funding their chosen education courses. Each case is reviewed as presented. The final decision of whether to lend our support is based on the applicant’s personal circumstances, projected career plan and financial situation.

The Projects Committee identifies charities and not for profit organisations in Yorkshire working in the areas of girls’ and women’s education, development and welfare that YLCE could support financially or support by YLCE member involvement.

We are looking to form a small group to drive and focus our fundraising efforts to best effect to boost our awards fund and enable us to support new educational or welfare initiatives for women. If any members are interested in becoming involved please contact YLCE chair Gill Lydon.
