This program is geared towards youth (13-21 years old) who have been in Canada for less than two years to learn more about their community, practice their English language skills, meet new friends and go on a field trip.  Participants who complete the program earn a 3 month free membership to the YMCA.  No Cost.  Registration required (please visit the Front Desk at your nearest YMCA).
