Strategic Plan 2020

Plan 2020 is a refresh of our Strategic Plan 2013-2017.   Many elements of our former plan remain relevant for  our communities and have set the stage for our path leading to 2020.  As a member of the Canadian YMCA Federation, deeply rooted in our communities of Leeds & Grenville, our imperative is to Build Healthy Communities in the broadest sense of the term. 

Plan 2020 is a dynamic plan ensuring impact, relevance and sustainability – ensuring the strength of our YMCA and thus the strength of our communities.  Annual plans will be developed to take us to our desired objectives.

The Community We Want

Imagine living in a thriving, healthy community. A community that is welcoming, dynamic, and diverse. One in which people of all ages see a place for themselves and develop a keen sense of belonging; where young and talented people are choosing to remain local and folks of all backgrounds are viewing our region as THE place to locate.

The YMCA is a key part of what our region needs today to respond to support the health of Canadians; to help combat social isolation and build a strong sense of community.

Our Commitment...

is to nurture the potential of all who engage in the YMCA by:

  • Creating opportunities to “belong”; to feel connected
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles
  • Providing significant benefit to the region
  • Fostering social responsibility
  • Delivering lasting personal and social change

  

The YMCA We Need...

is deeply rooted in our communities: recognized for our role in Building a Healthy Community and contributing to a  society based on equality and inclusion.
