    Create life-changing opportunities for youth like Shaylee

    Shaylee first joined the Y after enrolling her children in YMCA Child Care. It wasn't long after that Shaylee and her family found themselves in need of support. Because of the generous support of donors like you, Shaylee and her children have been given opportunities that otherwise would never have been possible.

    Help nurture future leaders like Elijah

    Youth come to the Y to develop life skills, education enrichment, health and wellness, recreation and international awareness. Elijah started swimming at a young age, and that passion for water continued to grow as he got older. At 14-years-old, he became a volunteer at the Don Wheaton Family YMCA in Edmonton and participates in aquatic leadership programs to become more confident.

  • Help youth like Simi rebuild their lives

    Every day, at-risk youth face barriers and struggle to find the support they need. The YMCA offers affordable housing, family support, and employment services to help our community's most vulnerable people. Eight years ago, Simi was a single mother to a 3-month-old, living in a women's shelter. Today, she has rebuilt her life through YMCA programs.
