What We Do
The Y is a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other. Working locally, we focus on empowering young people, improving health and well-being, and inspiring action in and across communities.
IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:
The Y is determined to support the academic success of all children, especially those most deeply impacted by COVID-19. For low-income students already at risk of falling behind, this school year has the potential to be devastating without access to educational resources and structured learning and enrichment opportunities beyond the classroom. Our Y’s back to school programs are helping reach our community’s most vulnerable students by removing financial barriers to accessibility.
As the region’s leading out-of-school care provider, the Y is needed now more than ever. We are uniquely positioned to meet critical needs and fill educational gaps for families who need us most - but we cannot do it alone. Our Y is counting on donor support to power our education-driven virtual learning and enrichment programs, including School Days+.
When you give to the YMCA Annual Campaign, you help create back to school opportunities
for all by sustaining our critical work and giving every child the chance to reach their full potential.
