YMCA of Yarmouth


WELCOME GEORGE YMCA Yarmouth is proud to announce the exciting new hire, George Lawton, as the Youth Facilitator. Originally form Manchester, England, George joins us after setting roots in Atlantic Canada for the past several years. He came to Canada in 2012 after accepting a soccer scholarship to the University of New Brunswick. George was part of the team that won three consecutive Atlantic University championships and he captained the team to a national silver medal in 2015 (the highest achievement for the program in 35 years). Prior to moving to Canada George spent time working in South Africa with the underprivileged children in the town of Knysna. It was here that he found his passion for helping others while also transferring his invaluable sporting knowledge.


George’s passion, work ethic and ability provide a recipe for success and the YMCA is lucky to have him on board. His plan is to revamp the way in which we interact with the youth of Yarmouth in several different ways. Implementation has already begun and to say we are excited is an understatement.
