Message from the President & CEO
President & CEO
Thank you for being a part of the Y!
2006/2007 was the first full year of implementing our Strategic Plan 2006/2007-2009/2010 with the key strategic directions of program and facility development, communications, and philanthropic development.
This past year, we invested in serving more people by expanding our number of licensed child care and day camp spaces, by relocating our employment and enterprise services in the best possible locations for accessibility to the greatest number of people, and by further increasing our capacity in health programs with renovations and equipment at the St. John's Y and the Mount Pearl Community Y.
We worked with staff and volunteers to better communicate our work to our communities to increase support to the Y and to ensure our Y Strong Families Campaign can be a tremendous success.
As one of the oldest charities in Newfoundland and Labrador, we are pleased to report an increase in charitable giving to the Y this past year. Gifts to the Y help us make sure we can continue to be open and accessible to everyone. In future years we will rely even more on the good will of generous people and generous communities to ensure our plans can be fulfilled and dreams become realities.
As always, we want to thank our 14,000 and growing program participants, our donors, our partners, our funders, our friends, our volunteers, and our staff. The work of the Y in our communities depends on all of you and together we will make sure the Y can provide urgently needed human services for another 150 years and beyond.
