In Your School

Research shows the activities children take part in after school—including clubs, activities and programs—have a significant impact on their successful development. YMCA has developed programs to help children be involved in healthy, positive activities during critical after-school hours.


YMCA Tutoring Table

Tutoring Table is a free mathematics tutoring program for motivated high school students, offered in partnerships with the United Way of Calgary and Area through the “All In for Youth” initiative. Tutoring takes place in a small group setting, enabling students to receive more individual attention and ask questions while building their math skills, improving their study habits, and having the opportunity to connect with positive adult role models. The program offered is at no cost to the participants.


  • The program is running at a limited number of on-site locations: Saddletowne YMCA, Shawnessy YMCA, Melcor YMCA at Crowfoot, Shane Homes YMCA at Rocky Ridge
  • Tutoring is also offered in a blended format (online zoom sessions)
  • Fully online zoom sessions are available Monday - Thursday for students who wish to enroll in online tutoring for the entire Fall 2020 semester
  • Additional health and safety measures including health screening questions, proper face covering, frequent hand sanitizing and disinfecting are mandatory for all tutoring staff, volunteers, and students
Application Deadline:

  • The online and on-site sessions will commence on October 13th, 2020
