Investing in young people, particularly those who are farthest from opportunity, is key to advancing equity and justice and building whole person health for all. There is great need in our communities, and we need your help. We invite you to join us this year as an advocate, volunteer and supporter.
Funding Focus Areas:
Access for All: To ensure equitable access for all, income-based financial assistance is available, ensuing no one is denied access to Y programs and services due to financial barriers.
Before and After School Enrichment: We work hand-in-hand with schools to foster social and emotional learning, encourage active play, and give kids the opportunity to discover what they love.
Camp and Outdoor Leadership: Outdoor programs help build leadership, life, and community building skills through traditional camp experiences and modern curriculum focused on social and emotional learning, and environmental education and stewardship.
Social Impact Center: The Y provides wraparound services including shelter, counseling, employment training, educational support, and more to young people through branch and community locations.
Teen Programs: Our Ys offer a variety of skill exploration, movement, civic engagement, and leadership development programs to help teens and young adults thrive and become change makers in the world.
Water Safety and Swim Lessons: We provide a safe environment for swimmers of all ages and abilities to set goals and achieve success, learn water safety, and enjoy swimming as a form of exercise.
Year-Round Youth Sports: Youth sports encourage healthy kids by prioritizing family involvement, healthy competition, and the value of participation over winning.
When you give to the Y, your contribution ensures that those who need us most have access to quality programs, activities, and resources to achieve their full potential in spirit, mind, and body.
