Whether due to unemployment, poor health, financial hardship or special circumstance, people struggle to provide for their families. The YMCA of the Golden Crescent has been responding to the needs of individuals and families in the greater Victoria community for more than 117 years. Through skills development, the support of a teacher or coach, or the socialization of a group of like-minded individuals, the Y fosters the care, nurturing and respect all people need and deserve.

We need your help to ensure that no one is denied a chance to participate because of an inability to pay. Only by working together can we give more kids the opportunity to grow strong in spirit, mind and body. Contributions received from the Friend of Youth Annual Campaign fund the growing number of scholarships awarded to individuals and families in need of vital Y programs and services.
