The YMCA: Nurturing social impact through individual empowerment

A charitable organization whose mission is to encourage and inspire all people to fulfill their potential, thrive and contribute to their community, the YMCAs of Québec offer programs in 36 points of service and virtually across the province, as well as operating an International Language School, YMCA Residence and Camp YMCA Kanawana. Thanks to financial partnerships with different levels of government and the generosity of its volunteers and donors, each year, the YMCA helps more than 120,000 people to develop their skills. As the first YMCA in North America, the YMCAs of Québec have been present in Québec since 1851.

Our mission: To inspire and encourage all people to reach their full potential, thrive and contribute to their community. 

Our values: caring, inclusion, solidarity, boldness, performance, respect
