Community Initiatives & Events

Our Y is serving as a community convener in a campaign to reduce childhood obesity by 2015. This program, the NJ Partnership for Healthy Kids, is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and is facilitated by the NJ State Alliance YMCA. Our Y will receive $300,000 to implement policies and healthy behaviors in the City of Vineland along with the Vineland Health Department who are a co-director in this process, Rutgers Innovation Center, Triad Associates, Vineland Public Schools, Stockton College and more.

Five communities throughout the State of NJ were selected to be a part of this program: New Brunswick, Trenton, Camden, Vineland and Newark. Each city has put together a strategic plan to implement healthy policies and behaviors within their city.

NJ Partnership for Healthy Kids - Vineland is always looking for interested partners for this great cause. For more information please contact Lisa Scheetz at 691-0030 ext. 125 or scheetz@ccaymca.org
