"We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give."
Where did you learn to swim? Who taught you how to pitch a tent or do a somersault? Where did you learn how to be a gracious winner? A good loser? When did you realize that those things mattered?
Throughout Marion and Polk Counties, over 1,100 youth are involved in YMCA programs every day. That's over 23,000 youth every year involved in over 500 different programs, camps and classes.
No boy or girl is ever turned away from registering for a YMCA activity because of an inability to pay.
Last year 1 in every 5 youth participants were on some form of financial assistance.
The Partners With Youth Campaign provides the financial support to say "yes" to youth in need.
