Ted McMeekin, MPP, announced today at the YMCA, that the province is investing more than $5 million over two years to help more than 800 highly-barriered youth find work in the Hamilton area. We're proud to be a provider of the Youth Job Connection Program and help connect Hamilton youth with the local business community.
Kat Clewley, YMCA Program Manager, has accomplished her goal - run the Hamilton Road2Hope Marathon backwards in record time, in support of YMCA Beyond the Bell. Her offical time was 4:48:42, which qualifies her for the Guinness World Record.
Check out her journey on CBC News.
Each day, YMCA Early Childhood Educators (ECE) model behaviours and values that encourage healthy child development. They are some of the first teachers these young YMCA participants will have in their life and they take that role seriously - building enthusiasm and a capacity for life-long learning in every child. We are proud of our YMCA ECE Staff Team. Happy ECE Appreciation Day!
