During YMCA Peace Week, we celebrate the presence of peace in our community — and those who make peace-week-medal-2016peace possible. We know that when people act for peace, they build a stronger community by promoting a sense of belonging, fostering empathy, embracing diversity and addressing the social determinants of health.

A special highlight of YMCA Peace Week is the YMCA Community Breakfast for Peace where we recognize peacemakers in our community with YMCA Peace Medals for their commitment to peace through contributions made within their local, national or global community. During the event, we will honour all nominees for their charitable work and present a YMCA Peace Medal to one youth, adult and group.

The 2018 Community Breakfast for Peace will be held on Thursday, November 22 2018. More details to come later.
