What We Do

There is no doubt the YMCA North makes a difference to the lives of hundreds of people every day. Here's how we do it...


After School Care (ASC)

On any given school day, approximately 100 kids attend one of three YMCA North After School Care centres.

There they are provided with a lively and varied schedule of activities and experiences that take into account different ages, interests, developmental levels and special needs.  We plan each week with a craft, science, sports and baking activities. We also provide a nutritious afternoon snack.


Holiday Programmes (HP)

Even when school is out, there is no rest for  YMCA North. 

Under the watchful eyes of our highly trained and caring staff, hundreds of children aged 5 to 13 get to gain confidence, foster friendships and learn new skills, all while having fun!



Gold Fit

Providing a holistic approach to helping senior adults in our community improve their health and well-being, we run nine Gold Fit classes each week. 

These classes are designed to provide a fun and enjoyable environment that helps participants maintain their independence and joy for life.



We work with quality volunteers to provide an enriching experiences for our participants in our region, and what we find is that for volunteers it proves to be an enriching experience for them also.

People that volunteer on our holiday and after school care programmes have loads of fun and make new friends. They engage in a positive, fun and motivating time and come away with valuable work experience.
