MEDALS

By the YMCAs of Quebec Foundation,
Benefiting the children, youth and families of the YMCA.

For 34 years, the YMCAs of Québec have been organizing the annual YMCA Peace Medals.

This event honours citizens and companies who contribute to building more united and harmonious communities. It also helps us raise money to help youth succeed in school and in life.

Once again this year, we will honour winners at an online event held simultaneously in Montréal and Québec City. This evening will be adapted to the public health guidelines in effect. More than ever, our young people need you.

By supporting the YMCA Peace Medals, you are supporting young people

This past year has particularly impacted young people. They were out of school for several months, losing their social networks and the trusted adults in their life, among others.

The Y is therefore working with them to rebuild, one young person at a time: not only through school success programs and TeenZones, but most importantly through caring and attentive staff and volunteers who support, encourage, and motivate them.

 Thanks to the donations received last year, we have been able to help thousands of young people. More than ever, your donations will make a huge difference in their lives.

I have been involved in the YMCAs of Québec Foundation since 2013, because I share the same values of caring, inclusion and solidarity. For me, giving back is synonymous with the gift that keeps on giving. Each year, I look forward to celebrating the new laureates. In the context of the pandemic, we will be doing it a little differently this year, but this celebration is still just as important, and our support is more essential than ever.
