About the Alliance project
Alliance : A cross-sectoral and inter-regional collaborative project to strengthen the links in the safety net
The Alliance project wishes to contribute to developing a continuum of inter-regional and cross-sectoral services to combat the sexual exploitation of young women and girls in the three regions where this project is being implemented (Montreal, the West Island and Montérégie-Suroît). The objective is to mobilize the education, institutional, law enforcement and community sectors in order to develop and put in place safety nets for young women and girls who are experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, situations of sexual exploitation.
This web platform, developed as part of the Alliance project, aims to raise awareness and provide tools to stakeholders from various backgrounds and regions, regarding cross-sectoral and inter-regional collaboration on sexual exploitation. Integrated, easy-to-use tools will be provided that will, among others things, address the benefits, cover the steps and provide the advice needed to carry out successful cross-sectoral collaborations.
About the YWCA Montreal
The YWCA Montreal, with the support of its Foundation, provides services to women, girls and their families so they can participate in and contribute to society to the best of their abilities. We also intervene among community stakeholders to raise awareness of the issues of exclusion, social and gender inequality, as well as all types of violence perpetrated against women and girls, and in doing so, improve practices.
