YMCA Community Action Network

The YMCA Community Action Network (YCAN) is a national program that supports 15- to 30-year-olds who want to get involved and create new service opportunities in their community. This innovative program is part of the Canada Service Corps initiative and engages leaders from across the country to address community needs through service projects.

Program participants are recruited and supported by the YMCA to identify, develop, and successfully complete their own service projects.

Get involved!
