Y Kids Academy

Raising money in support of the Y Kids Academy is a commitment to improving the health of children in our community.

Children in our community are not getting sufficient physical activity to promote healthy development. The Y Kids Academy is a program designed to address these issues by providing education about the importance of healthy, active living as well as hands-on instruction in strength and cardiovascular training for all 7000 grade six students in the National Capital Region. 

The first initiative of its kind in Canada, the Y has taken a proactive stand by inviting these students to participate in the Y Kids Academy at no cost. Upon successful completion of the program, the grade six students will also receive a free one year Y membership. Your donation will be used to cover direct costs of participation, help create important transportation options, train volunteer Y Kids Academy Leaders and expand the program into more communities.

Thank you for your support.
