We always welcome new members, whether you want to be actively involved or just be part of our charity, please join us.
Present members who want to be more involved in the activities and the running of YLCE should get in touch with the committee chairmen directly. Below is an outline of each committee activity - your help will make a big difference to how much we achieve so please do let us know if you have time to help.
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.
