In response to facility closures, in collaboration with YMCAs across the country, the YMCA of Northeastern Ontario launched YMCA at Home as a free virtual YMCA, connecting people to fitness classes, children’s programs, and personal wellness resources. Now, with the Near North District School Board and the Rainbow District School Board as early adopters, the YMCA has launched YGym, an online platform for families and school boards to experience virtual physical activity programming which can be offered as a resource to their educators and students as a part of their school’s e-learning platform.
YGym is instructed by a YMCA certified fitness coach and features content based on YMCA Canada's Health & Fitness programs and Canada's Physical Activity Guidelines. With activities designed to complement physical education, the YMCA has made this resource available for schools to use for free.
The YMCA is a charity serving our communities for over 160 years. During these unprecedented times, the Y needs your help more than ever to be able to serve those most in need in our community.
