Helping Kids Reach Their Potential

The Y is a place where kids can feel like they belong. That matters because, when they feel connected and accepted, kids become stronger and healthier. And they can grow up with the tools needed to succeed.

The YMCA is a charity dedicated to building healthy communities by nurturing the potential of children, teens and young adults, promoting healthy living, and fostering social responsibility. We provide the skills, encouragement and social connections kids need to fulfill their potential through several core services.

These services are vital because healthy kids grow into healthy adults who make up healthy communities. More than 1.4 million kids, teens and young adults participate in our programs and services in more than 1,000 locations across Canada. But there are also so many more who could use our help.

At the Y we never met a kid whose potential we couldn’t see.
