CYM has weekly meetings which includes discussion groups, sport, singing, arts and crafts and field trips. Lectures and discussion groups enable the youth to broaden their knowledge in areas such as history,
geography, literature and traditions. Aside from weekly meetings, the youth have opportunities to participate in various sports by joining volleyball, soccer, baseball, hockey and other teams. CYM Hamilton is very proud of Svitanok, its all-female choir conducted by Marichka Duncan which has existed for over 4 decades.
Along with these weekly meetings there are also summer and winter camp programs. Both the National Executive and the branches organize camps with varying characteristics appealing to a wide range of youth as well as adult members. Some camps concentrate on the development of leadership skills, while others are athletic in nature. The National Executive organizes leadership camps which help prepare future counsellors for the organization.

UNYF Hamilton is organizing and structuring itself, trying to learn as much from its fellow organizations to best set itself up for success. UNYF Hamilton focuses on activities that will be designed to reach out and draw in Ukrainian youth in a way that they will enjoy and appreciate the benefits of expressing their Ukrainian culture. Currently, majority of our members are involved within the Chaika Song and Dance Ensemble. Working very closely with the UNO and OYK Hamilton branches, our members have been involved with UNF events and activities that have lasted over the past decade. We now hope to formally come together as a UNYF Hamilton branch in order to build a stronger foundation for our cultural preservation.
