On September 15, 2016 the YMCA, along with 10 other youth serving agencies in Edmonton planned and executed the 3rd Annual YEG Youth Connect event hosted at the Boyle Street Plaza/ YMCA Welcome Village.
Each year the YMCA recognizes outstanding achievements by volunteers or employees who show a dedication to improving their community and helping others. The scholarships support these individuals to continue the amazing work they do.
The YMCA of Northern Alberta has received a community grant through the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Wildfires 2016 Community Organization Partnership Program. This grant will support the YMCA in our continued efforts to deliver quality programs and services to the residents of Wood Buffalo in their recovery.
In June, the Globe and Mail printed a Philanthropy Supplement and the YMCA was featured.
