Introducing new Northeast YMAP Coordinator

Meet Puja Suri, the newest member of the YMCA Achievement Program (YMAP) Team.

Puja comes to the YMCA from The Calgary Bridge Foundation and brings much excitement and knowledge about working with youth. She has plans to bring new volunteer opportunities and experiences to the program participants enrolled in YMAP. Puja is excited to apply herself to various initiatives throughout the Y.

YMAP is a YMCA stay-in-school initiative for young newcomers to Canada, ages 15 to 20. Participants receive the skills they need to succeed at school, work and in their communities. YMAP participants are 20% more likely to graduate from high school than other youth in Alberta. There is no fee to participate in this program.

Visit Puja during the northeast YMAP program on Tues-Thurs in northeast schools.
