YMCA Giving is our charity. When you support YMCA Giving, you help us make connecting, belonging and thriving a reality for children and youth, right here in Central and Northern Alberta by giving today.


How we invest in young people

Children and youth come to the YMCA to join YMCA Child Care, learn leadership skills and start their health and wellness journey. Across Northern and Central Alberta, we offer a variety of children and youth programs that help young people develop life skills, enrich their education, become confident and gain international awareness. Even through the COVID-19 pandemic, our programs have adapted and are still helping child and youth learn, grow and thrive.

Your support will ensure children and youth in our community have a better chance to succeed in school and in life. Specific programs supported could include the following:
