“This exchange is a great opportunity to meet new people, form new bonds, explore a new environment, discover a different culture and see the other side of Canada. 100% would do it again.” – 2016 Program Participant


History of YMCA of Oakville Youth Travel Exchange

In 2016, we participated in our first youth travel exchange with the YMCA of Northern BC and travelled to Prince George, British Columbia.

Learn about the highlights of the 2016 Youth Exchange Program by viewing the 2016 YMCA Youth Exchange Report.

In 2017, a new group of youth visited the YMCA of Greater Halifax, where they built teamwork and collaboration skills, formed new friendships, explored the culture of Nova Scotia.


Stay tuned for information about our next Youth Travel Exchange in Summer 2018!
