Welcoming Week 2021

September 9, 2021

Welcoming Week at the Y!

Monday, Sep 13–Sunday, Sep 19 | All Facilities
We are excited to celebrate Welcoming Week! Welcoming Week brings together immigrants and U.S.-born residents at community-based events to promote cross-cultural understanding and raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone. 
Between Sep 13–19, stop by your YMCA facility and mark your country of origin or heritage on the map of the world located in the lobby and celebrate the cultural diversity that makes us stronger through various programs and activities. We’re excited to see how many places we can add to the maps! 

Friday, Sep 17, 6–9pm | Edwards Greenhouse | FREE

Join us for personal stories from the Refugee Speakers Bureau focusing on sports’ vital role in building bridges and creating connections between New Americans and their neighbors. A packaged meal will be provided for each attendee.
