2017 YMCA Peace Week
November 18-25, 2017
YMCA of Newfoundland and Labrador is celebrating the Annual YMCA World Peace Week during November 18-25, 2017. YMCA World Peace Week is an annual YMCA Canada event to celebrate peace and peace-building in communities across Canada and around the world.
Participation, Empathy, Advocacy, Community, Empowerment!
That’s what PEACE means to us.
2017 YMCA Peace Maker
A special highlight of the event is the nomination of a YMCA Peace Maker recipient, an individual or group who without any special resources, demonstrates commitment to peace through special contributions made within the community.
30th Anniversary of the YMCA Peace Medal.
The medal was developed in 1987
by a small group of volunteers and staff at the YMCA of Fredericton.
To date, over 1,900 YMCA Peace Medals have been awarded across the country to celebrate
people and organizations doing important peace-building work in communities across Canada.
This year, the YMCA Peace Maker recipient will be awarded a YMCA Peace Medallion and a framed certificate at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in December. If you know of an individual or group who without any special resources, demonstrates commitment to peace through special contributions made within the community, please consider nominating them for the award.
The deadline for nominations is 4:00 pm on Wednesday, November 15, 2017. Please forward all nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
