YMCA Launches Community Action Network

This innovative national program engages local youth (ages 15-30), including those identifying in under-represented groups  youth with opportunities to participate in service initiatives that will address community needs.

In partnership with 9 other YMCAs across Canada, youth from regional  communities will be recruited, trained and mentored to successfully  select, lead, deliver and evaluate service initiatives in their own  communities.  Each service project will develop a network of community contacts and stakeholders, in turn increasing the meaningfulness of the project, opportunities for youth development all while adding value to the local community. This initiative will also provide these youth with career  development skills, volunteer hours and more.
