Tell us about your YMCA Experience!

Your Opinions Matter. Tell us about your YMCA.

We are excited to launch YMCA Calgary’s Annual Impact Survey. Feedback on your experience at the YMCA will help identify ways that we can better meet the needs and expectations of all the people who are connected with us.

Because everyone’s opinion is very important to us, both members and the general public can participate. If you are a YMCA Calgary member or participant, or have a connection to YMCA Calgary: we’d love to hear from you!

The fun part of launching this survey is the associated contest. All survey participants also have chances to win some cool YMCA prizes! Spend 5 to 20 minutes to provide feedback and get the link to enter the contest. Survey ends December 7.



Hoops Hurray!

How did you enjoy the YMCA Aboriginal Youth Hoops tournament? Each year YMCA’s Aboriginal Active Life program hosts the Aboriginal Youth Hoops tournament—a 3-on-3 tournament is for Aboriginal youth ages 16Y–30Y. The tournament took place at Shaw Millenium Park on July 1.

Last night, YMCA Calgary held our 110th Annual Annual General Meeting and Volunteer of the Year presentations. The event turnout, catering, presentations and atmosphere were all fantastic–it was an evening of positive energy and inspiration!

The Calgary Stampede Indian Princess was a special guest, giving a wonderful talk about her relationship with YMCA Calgary. (Click here to view the original event invitation.)

Volunteer of the Year presentations were the highlight of the evening. One adult and one youth volunteer from each YMCA Calgary branch was presented with a plaque and commemorative video as a thank you for their hard work and dedication to YMCA Calgary. We couldn’t do it without our incredible volunteers!

Did you know YMCA Calgary has approximately 950 volunteers? Click here to find out more about how you can become a volunteer.
