Growing up isn't easy. School, home life, friends, the changes that happen with adolescence—it’s tough being a teen! From meeting new people and getting active, to learning new skills or finding the job—the Y has a variety of ways youth can reach their potential. We believe if given the opportunity, young people can change our world!

Learn & Connect

Our portfolio of youth programs will expose your teen to new ideas, opportunities and passions. From developing leadership skills in the Youth Leadership programs to learning about a new part of Canada through the Youth Exchanges Canada program, we’ve got something for everyone.

To learn more, check out all of our youth programs currently available.

Get Active

Being active is not only good for our bodies, but for our mind and spirit too! Developing healthy attitudes and behaviours at a young age helps prevent chronic disease in adulthood.

From sports and recreation programs like our Steve Nash Youth Basketball League or our youth memberships that include free swim lesson and fitness consultations, we’ve got a range of opportunities for all interests and abilities to get moving!

Go to Camp

Camp is unlike any other experience. Fresh air, exciting opportunities and challenges that encourage children and teens to learn new things about themselves and others. When your child or teen participates in camp, they develop confidence, gain leadership skills, have fun and make life-long friendships!
