About CYMK-Ukrainian Orthodox Youth
The event is organized and hosted by CYMK- the Ukrainian Orthodox Youth group of Canada, established in 1931. Their aim is to foster hard-working young people of the Ukrainian Orthodox community into leaders with a strong base in their faith, culture and ties to their community. All local youth groups are active members of their parishes, whether donating money for windows, vestments, chandeliers, or orphanages, or planning and leading social-events for the parish.
“The Convention is an event that everyone needs to experience at least once! Not only do attendees get to explore a new city and new people, but they get to experience the ties that bring people together in close community…”
Liza Zienchuk, National CYMK-UOY President
With an enriching and uplifting environment, the Convention is an excellent opportunity where youth can connect and experience the power of being united in a family of volunteer organizations. All who attend return home inspired to start their own service projects. Register today! www.cymk.ca/join-us
