Leadership Program

Not-For-Profit Leadership Institute

The YMCA has partnered with Lakehead University to deliver a series of training events for not-for-profit leaders.  The YMCA has also partnered with the Trillium Foundation on this project and is looking to secure other strategic partners to ensure that the program is sustainable and meets the needs of the not-for-profit community.  The Coalition has partnered with the YMCA of Simcoe Muskoka on this leadership program initiative and its membership in an effort to meet the Coalition’s Mission: to maximize the capacity, effectiveness and cultural uniqueness of the child, youth and family service system through collective efforts.
