About the Kidstarter Program

YMCA Kidstarter is our commitment to empowering young people by connecting them with opportunities to achieve their goals. We know many young people who have big dreams and we’ve been inspired by them to create this online community to help turn dream futures into reality. 

Support can be in the form of personal or professional development opportunities, real-life experience and an introduction to a professional in their area of interest, or sharing the story with someone else who can help the young person meet their goal.

In 2015, an initial group of six young people shared their goals  and the community responded.
