Access to Opportunity is a fund at the YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth that’s specifically designated to help make our programs accessible to everyone in our community. Whether they’re joining our Community Y Basketball Team, bringing their families to the John W Lindsay YMCA, accessing our Immigration programs, going to Camp, or partaking in Employment services – no one is turned away at our YMCA!
We are committed to eliminating financial barriers and providing everyone the opportunity to participate in YMCA programs and services. A YMCA financially assisted membership offers access to the same facilities, programs, and services at a reduced rate.
