YMCA Peace Week Activities for Kids, Youth and Adults

The YMCA believes peace is more than the absence of war. It requires the presence of something – the recognition of basic human rights and the provision of basic human needs. Since 1984, YMCAs across Canada have spent the third week in November organizing special activities to engage children, youth and adults in exploring peace from local and global perspectives. Annually, YMCA Peace Week brings Associations together with international partner YMCAs and hundreds of school and community partners in a week-long event that highlights our common interest in creating a more just and peaceful world. YMCA Peace Week will take place in November 2014.
