  • YMCA Moncton thanks Rogers for funding Alternative Suspension Program to help at-risk youth

    Moncton, N.B., September 27, 2017 – The YMCA of Greater Moncton today celebrated its community partnership with Rogers, who recently provided a $25,000 community grant as part of the Ted Rogers Scholarship Program, to support the Y’s Alternative Suspension Program.  The program helps local youth suspended from school transform their time out of the classroom into a more positive experience.

    “For tens of thousands of youth in Canada, succeeding and even staying in school can be a challenge,” said Zane Korytko, CEO of the YMCA of Greater Moncton. “A traditional at-home suspension is a missed opportunity for both the student and the school. However, the YMCA Alternative Suspension program has proven over the years that the time away from school can turn into a positive experience promoting the student’s personal growth and academic success.”
