About Us

The YMCA has been part of life in Newfoundland and Labrador since 1854. We are a charity dedicated to strengthening the foundations of communities. We do this by nurturing the potential of children, teens, and young adults; promoting healthy living; and fostering social responsibility. Our focus on inclusiveness and accessibility means we serve people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities through all stages of life. Through YMCA financial assistance programs, the YMCA is accessible to all.

Our charity’s core programs of Health, Fitness, and Aquatics; Child Care and Day Camp; and Employment, Enterprise, and Newcomer Services are offered at more than 20 locations in our communities with an additional 170 points of delivery throughout the province.
