"My son loves attending the Y. He is always excited when it is "Y" day - and simply knowing he is able to do something he loves on a regular basis makes me confident this has a positive impact on his life. I have been so pleased - by what seems so simple - but the fact that at drop off - when we walk through the door he is always warmly and enthusiastically greeted by name. This really helps him feel a sense of belonging and gives him a great start to his day outside of the home."

Your Y story, whether it’s about you, the people you know, or an entire community, has the potential to motivate others with real-life tales of how the Y not only promises but delivers positive change.

Through your unique and special voice, the Y can share your story to bring people together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. If a story about the Y has meaning for you, and you’re willing to tell it, then we believe it’s worth hearing!
