Last Friday the Calgary YMAP team got together with our students to celebrate the amazing year of achievements and adventures that we shared. YMCA Calgary’s CEO & President, Helene Weir gave a few words about the importance of continuing to educate ourselves, and the value in supporting the education of our youth both locally and globally, as they are the leaders of our future.  

YMAP students received awards for Participation, Integrity, Leadership, and Outstanding Commitment.  Six grade 12 YMAP students also received this year’s Rotary Scholarship for making a commitment to continuing their educational careers. The performances by YMAP students included singing by Anh and Steven, two talented YMAP students whose musical skills got us all up on our feet and clapping along, and DANCE FUSION, a student-led dance group started by one of our very own YMAP students.

This has been an amazing year for YMAP, and we are all looking forward to the summer Explorers and Leaders programs as we continue to support our students’ success.
