Who are you supporting?

By supporting the YMCA Peace Medals, you are concretely contributing to the deployment of our youth programs and to maintaining our impact in communities in Montréal, Québec, and beyond.


Anyone who comes to the Y to attend online classes because they lack Internet access at home, is someone who perseveres. When they join a virtual game hosted by a TeenZone youth worker, they connect with a trusted adult, to whom they can then turn when things get tough either at home or at school.

A helping hand for our School Success programs

Our School Success sector focuses on supporting youth academically through a variety of programs, all made possible by your donations.

  • After-School Homework Help: our youth workers motivate teens and help them adopt good study habits and improve their grades.
  • Pathways to Education is a school support program that helps students finish high school and become actively involved in building their future career.
  • YMCA Alternative Suspension is a dropout prevention program developed to counter these risk factors.
  • Plusone Mentoring is a community-based mentoring program designed to engage youth, who are experiencing challenges in their social and academic development, in a meaningful relationship with an adult role model.

Support for our TeenZones

Our TeenZones are a safe, inclusive place where teens can hang out, socialize, and learn after school or in their free time.

We offer a rich and diverse programming including sports (basketball, soccer, hip-hop dance), cultural, and artistic activities led by dynamic youth workers.
