The Notre- Dame-de-Grâce Y centre has been in tune with its community. It welcomes NDG residents, as well as people from the neighbouring districts of Westmount, Côte-Saint-Luc, Hampstead, Montreal West and LaSalle.
The NDG Y centre works in partnership with community organizations such as the NDG Community Council, the local CSSS, the CDEC, Éco-quartier, Action Communiterre, as well as several schools and social clubs. This community, with its broad social, economic and linguistic diversity, benefits from the numerous Y programs for youth. The Teen Zone is particularly active. Six days a week, it is open to teens from all backgrounds. Through games and social activities, it encourages them to become confident, responsible adults.
There are also many services for children and families. The centre offers parents a daycare centre and a day camp as well as the highly popular family membership. With The YMCAs of Québec's Acces for All policy, its programs are accessible to hundreds of people and families coping with difficult financial circumstances.
