General Secretary's Welcome

Welcome to the YMCA d’Haïti!

We are an institution committed to empowering youth and strengthening communities.  For more than 15 years, the YMCA d’Haïti has been hard at work establishing centers, implementing programs in ten communities.  I encourage you to get to know us online, but I highly recommend that you come visit the Community Center closest to you.  It will afford us the opportunity to get to know you and You can become familiar with the YMCA family.

The basic programs offered at the YMCA d’Haïti’s are: Afterschool, Scholarship (Potekole), STEM and Sports camps, Reading and Literacy, and Leadership.  Without the dedication and commitment of our staff of thirty and well trained volunteers these programs could not have been implemented.  We offer our youth and adults a nurturing environment which meets their needs and allows them to learn, grow and thrive.

The YMCA d’Haiti has garnered the reputation as the youth empowerment organization of reference in Haiti both locally and internationally.  This community-based organization is committed to supporting disadvantaged youth by providing them with quality programs in all our centers.

I look forward to seeing you at the YMCA d’Haïti,

Gwénaël Apollon
Secretary General
