Through the support of our Strong Kids Campaign we provide opportunities such as Y membership for children, youth and families, day camps, and access to programs at the Y and in the community. Kids can ignite their potential through youth leadership and development programs, swim lessons, sports and recreation, while building connections with family, friends and community.

Your Support at Work
With the help of donors like you, the Fekiri family have not only become active Y members since arriving in Canada, they have become a part of our community. In addition to accessing swimming lessons, basketball and soccer (or football to the Fekiri family), Kamel says "We’ve all made friends through coming to the Y, the kids are learning the language, and we are really starting to feel like we are a part of Winnipeg ... Thank you so much for your help. Our family is very lucky to have this membership and thank you.”
Partners for a Strong Future
We believe that when we work together, our collective impact shines. Our network of partnerships with community-serving organizations enhances our impact and together we can accomplish great things. Working with local partners, we reach approximately 1000 kids and family members annually and are able to connect with those most in need. Strong Kids may be referred by Y staff, the schools and charitable organizations we partner with, government agencies and private individuals.
