The Ukrainian Youth Association (UYA), or commonly known as SUM, is an international voluntary, non-profit youth organization with branches across Canada. The membership is comprised primarily of youth between the ages of 5 and 18 although there is a role for individuals of all ages interested in furthering the objectives of the Association.
The Association encourages Ukrainian children and youth to discover their Ukrainian heritage by promoting Ukrainian language traditions and cultural activities. The multi-faceted program includes weekly membership meetings, excursions and trips, athletic programs, summer and winter camps. These activities all emphasize the development of Christian ethics, good character and leadership skills.
