You can help give them housing, education, mental health counselling, and more.
During their most critical formative years, our youth faced lockdowns, layoffs, disruptions to their education, mental health challenges, and countless other setbacks. The YMCA is a charity empowering youth with the supports and opportunities they need to overcome these barriers and thrive. Your gift can help provide critical programming, including:
at YMCA Sprott House or The Wagner Green YMCA for youth without housing.
at The YMCA Academy for youth with learning disabilities and learning style differences.
MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORTS
like counselling and substance use programs.
PREPARATION FOR THE LABOUR MARKET
including internships, leadership development programs, and volunteer opportunities.
Your gift will mark a turning point for youth, giving them the chance they deserve to grow into healthy adults.
How your gift helps
gives 25 children access to healthy breakfast at school.
gives a youth without housing access to counselling and employment services.
provides a teen with a safe place to sleep in one of our shelters.
Your donation can give youth the tools and opportunities they need to succeed, today and into the future.
From youth experiencing homelessness or substance use challenges to people trying desperately to find a job and make ends meet, our community's most vulnerable are relying on the Y for help. Donor support allows us to offer key housing, mental health, and employment supports for those in need - including people navigating the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our community.
You can make a significant difference in the lives of individuals at-risk. Together, we can pave the way to brighter futures and strengthen our community.
