On August 12, we join the world in celebrating International Youth Day!
The YMCA provides young people with safe places to be with their peers and the chance to express themselves. Through empowering programs and services, we are working together with youth to move the obstacles in their way to greater things. With mentorship, encouragement and mutual problem solving, we can support youth as they develop into the role models and leaders our communities need.
Every day, Ys nurture the development of young people like Tina:
“The YMCA helped me become more confident. Now, I help my friends – inspiring and motivating others makes me feel like a better person.” – Tina, 13 yrs
Join us in celebrating youth in our communities, our country, and our world.
