Youth Exchange Program | YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka

An opportunity to travel, the chance to grow, discover commonalities and develop friendships

The opportunity to travel, the chance to grow, the ability to meet peers from around the world, discover commonalities and develop friendships…This is what YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka youth exchanges are all about.

For years, youth leaders from across our region have had the unique opportunity to travel to places they had only dreamed of; Sierra Leone, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Honduras, Hawaii, Japan and the Czech Republic. The experiences have taught participants that people an ocean away are not so different from ourselves; that we are all the same. Learning that we share so much means we can empathize and work to improve the world we live in together.

YMCA Youth Leader Exchange trips practically apply our values by putting caring, honesty, inclusiveness, respect and responsibility into action. Join youth leaders today and help make a difference here and around the world.
