About YMAP

At YMCA, all people, regardless of race, age, gender, background or financial circumstance are welcome. Part of our commitment to helping strengthen foundation of community and providing equal access to all is working with newcomers to Canada—ensuring people have the tools and support systems in place to help them succeed.

Immigrant youth in Calgary are at greater risk of not finishing high school than other youth. YMAP is a life skills, career exploration and leadership program for high school youth with an immigrant background. It is a YMCA stay-in-school initiative for participants 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. For more information, contact the YMAP Director at 403-241-4605.
