What others are saying
For me, this program was life-changing. I have learned so many different skills, met so many amazing people, have had unforgettable experiences and most importantly, learned more about myself than I think I could have in years if I didn’t take this amazing opportunity.
It was an incredible opportunity to give back to my community in a meaningful and profound way. I suspect it will take many years to truly grasp all of the incredible benefits of this program.
The Oddity Art Show project has benefited my community by allowing so many different artists from different backgrounds to come together and create. It takes away prejudice and exposes a whole new culture for young people, and gives the community a chance to see what youth are truly capable of.
Thanks to Canada Service Corps, I was able to create a basketball program for youth and ensure that it’s easily accessible to everyone, because not everybody who wants to do something can afford it.
YCAN of YMCA gives youth like me the opportunity to soar and be heard about the real issues that some of us face. It also gives us a chance to help our community grow and bring about positive changes.
