Removing Barriers

Together, the YMCA SIBC team and community partners are removing barriers to meaningful job opportunities, mental wellness, school success, healthy bodies and overall wellbeing. Read our annual report to learn how our community; child care; and health, fitness and aquatics divisions made a difference in 2022.

2022 Highlights

To respond to our community's needs, we:

  • Welcomed over 90% of our membership back, proving their renewed commitment to health and wellness.
  • Rebuilt our Volunteer Program to engage more community members.
  • Invested in Lifeguard and Early Childhood Educator training to remove barriers to entering these career fields.
  • Created unique initiatives with like-minded organizations, like the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation and the Stober Foundation, raising funds to help us respond to increased community need.
  • Expanded the delivery of our Mental Health programs and developed Mindfulness curriculum for children aged 6 to 12.
  • Partnered with the Federal Government and School District #23 to support resilience and school attachment through our Youth Transition Program.
