It's Official – Our Vanauley Street YMCA Centre for Youth is Open!

April 29, 2015

It seems only fitting the sun was shining as donors, government and community partners, and friends celebrated the official opening of our new Vanauley Street YMCA. Things are looking brighter for at-risk and homeless youth in the Queen and Spadina neighbourhood with so many supportive programs and services offered at this incredible YMCA Centre of Community.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by to see the new facility --including Toronto Ward 20 Councillor Joe Cressy, and Trinity-Spadina MP Adam Vaughan (above). With General Manager Louise Smith, YMCA CEO Medhat Mahdy, and YMCA Board Chair Tim Penner, they commemorated this historical event with a time capsule.

Thank you to everyone who helped us bring such vital support to those who need it most through our Vanauley Street YMCA. Together, we truly are helping youth turn their lives around. To learn more about this incredible new facility, click here.
