YMCA Community Action Network

The YMCA Community Action Network (YCAN) is an innovative national program that engages leaders ages 15 to 30 across Canada to address a community need through service projects. The program, part of the Canada Service Corps initiative, supports youth with opportunities to identify and execute a local service project that is meaningful to them. Each service project develops a network of community contacts and provides the participants with career development skills, volunteer hours, and more all while adding value to the local community.

Service Project Examples:
  1. Community Garden
  2. Food/Clothing Drive
  3. Health and Wellness Day
  4. Community Garbage Pick Up

YCAN is a good fit for you if:

  • You are between the ages of 15-30
  • You are a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person who has been granted refugee status in Canada
  • You are passionate about learning new skills, building community connections, and making a difference in your community
