Did you know that the YMCA helps kids stay in school? Hooked on School Days are here from February 12 to 16

YMCAs of Québec - February 08 2018

At the Y, you can shoot some hoops, learn about life and get the skills to succeed in school.

3,000 students, roughly 60 school buses​, are continuing their studies thanks to our YMCA Alternative Suspension and homework help programs. But that’s not all. We can encourage kids to succeed in school as soon as they are born. Physical activity plays a huge part too.

Getting kids interested in reading. Showing them how to interact with their friends. Building up their self-esteem. Helping them develop their motor skills. Getting them moving. This all contributes to their academic success.

By participating in our programs, more than 35,000 kids are on the path to success: in our daycares and Youth Zones, at camp and in our fitness and school support programs.

Thank you! All this would not be possible without our generous volunteers and donors.

Join us in our commitment to school perseverance by wearing a green and white ribbon for Hooked On School Days from February 12 to 16. And remember to encourage a young person in your life today!
