Show your support for the Summer Leaders (YMAP) this August!

The YMCA Achievement Program (YMAP) has been busy this past month! Summer Explorers have finished up school for July and are now onto volunteering. They are required to complete 20 hours in order to be paid at the end of summer. Some of their volunteering shifts will be completed at Inn from the Cold, Calgary’s Drop- In and Rehab Centre and Global Fest to name a few.

Summer Leaders have been busy planning fundraisers and attending field trips for the month of July. Some of the fun activites they have done include; games day at Riley Park, visiting Telus Spark, baking at CO-OP Midtown Market and volunteering at the Mustard Seed and Drop-In and Rehab Centre.

A lot of heart and soul has gone into the Summer Leaders fundraising projects. If you have the chance, please stop by and see their creative ideas in action for yourself! The following are the fundraising dates, locations and times. Hope to see you there!
