For the last decade the YMCA has been my home, family, and a place of growth. Everyday, I strive to strengthen my community by connecting the kids to their passions, future, and peers. The most powerful thing a teen has said to me that she is at the YMCA to find "better" friends. I cannot imagine not being on the journey with a young girl that is trying to change her future through positive influences. Help me continue to reach more young people and give them a sense of purpose and a positive environment to grow.
Your money will provide social and emotionally health for young people, provide skills that many of us wish we learned when we were young, such as car maintenance, danger of credit cards, how depression will effect you in your life, and how to find your purpose.
No dollar amount is too small!
