  • Eva in a YMCA Child Care centre, smiling

    Help people like Eva find belonging

    When Eva’s family first arrived in Canada from Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), language wasn’t an issue. Landing in Quebec in 2012, Eva’s French easily got her through high school. However, when she moved to Alberta, that changed and she needed help. That is when she discovered the YMCA’s Bridging the Gap (BTG) program.

  • Rahim smiling at the camera from the track of the William Lutsky Family YMCA.

    Change the life of individuals like Rahim

    Every day, people of all ages and backgrounds come to the YMCA and speak with staff about financial assistance. In 1999, Rahim Moloo was one of those people.

  • Daniela and two other YMCA participants, holding a sign that reads Migrado YMCA.

    Transforming the lives of youth like Daniela

    Daniela was morbidly obese at the age of 10. She would lock herself in her room, and wouldn't talk to anyone but her family and one close friend. It wasn't long after that she experienced bullying in school and cyberbullying as well. Then, her school counsellor sent her to YMCA Bogotá for support.
