Youth are facing barriers no one can overcome on their own.

You can help give them housing, education, mental health counselling, and more.


Help youth flourish by giving a gift today.

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:

Help your neighbours find a brighter future by supporting the Y.

In bed

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.
