ANNUAL DINNER GALA of the YMCAs of Quebec Foundation,
benefiting the children, youth and families of the YMCA.

Tuesday, November 10, From 5 p.m.
Join us to honour exceptional individuals

On November 10, the 33th edition of the YMCA Peace Medals will take place, an annual tradition honouring citizens who help build more harmonious and united communities. In this very special edition, we will also be celebrating our honorary laureate, L. Jacques Ménard, C.C., G.O.Q. (1946-2020), for his unwavering commitment to youth and communities.

This year, your participation is more important than ever!

Now more than ever, our youth need you! Funds raised through the event will allow us to offer hundreds of youth from our school support and TeenZone programs the essential help they need in this difficult period.

Since March, the pandemic has presented numerous challenges for our youth, especially with issues related to education, isolation and mental health. The YMCA team sees it every day: the current situation has helped deepen existing inequalities. The 2020 school year will be filled with new challenges for our youth, but thanks to your support, we can help them overcome these obstacles.

Your support and solidarity can make all the difference in their lives!

Learn about our:

I’ve been involved with the YMCAs of Québec Foundation since 2013, because I share the same values, like caring, inclusion and solidarity. I believe that giving back is the gift that keeps on giving. I look forward to the YMCA Peace Medals each year, because it’s a major event for me, and it won me over from the first edition. It’s a magical evening that’s full of discovery, gratitude and most of all, emotion. Don’t miss it!
