Nurturing the potential of every child and teen
We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors that makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
7th Grade Initiative Specialty Membership
The YMCA 7th Grade Initiative is a program just for 7th graders! We are in our third year of the program which runs October through June (2012-2013). This program offers all area 7th graders (public, private and home school) a FREE specialty membership. The specialty membership allows participants to join the program held on Saturday evenings at the Y from 6:30-8:30pm (after the facility has closed).
The program is run by trained Y staff and includes a variety of different themes, activities and games on a weekly basis. Participants will have access to the pool, fitness center, gymnasium, special "game room" and a healthy "Y Cafe."
Our goal is to provide a healthy, fun and safe environment to all 7th graders. The program is designed to give kids a place to go on Saturday evenings to have fun while also participating in long-lasting healthy habits and social interaction.
The program is able to run through sponsorship, donations and fundraising. Our major sponsor is the United Way who has provided a 3 year - $30,000 grant. Other sponsors include SJ Industries, BC Processing and private donors. Look for upcoming fundraisers to help support this great program!
Registration is required and can be done so at the Y. For questions, details or sponsorship opportunities for the program, please contact Cara Messore at 691-0030 ext. 307 or email@example.com
