Underdawg 5K supports Indy College Students & Neighbors

The Intercollegiate YMCA is changing Indianapolis by connecting college students from UIndy, Butler, IUPUI, and Ivy Tech to service opportunities that IMPACT our community, INFLUENCES change, and teaches them to INTEGRATE service into their life after college.

Underdawg 5K logoThe students we engage provide free after school and day camp programs to youth in low-income apartment communities that ensure academic success, improve behavior through positive mentoring, and change their attitude towards their education. This program has contributed to an increase in overall grades and test scores, as well as played a part in the reduction of youth-involved crime in the communities.

Help us continue these programs!

REGISTER NOW!

Your support through the 5K will help us continue our programs and allow us to expand in more communities and change the lives of youth and college students across Indianapolis.

Don’t stop now! Check out all of the races in the YMCA Inspire Indy 5K Series.

Kitchen Basics – Stocks and Broths @ Irsay Family YMCA at CityWay
Oct 17 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Kitchen Basics is an adult cooking class series led by our experienced instructor, Kellyn Powers.

This month’s class will cover stocks and broths from start to finish! We will go over how to make stocks and broths, how to cool and store them properly, and what to do with leftover ingredients. Students will receive written notes and will have the opportunity to try the stocks and broths as we go.

 

About Our Instructor:

Kellyn Powers is a graduate of Indiana University, mother of two young girls, and holds an intense fascination with food anthropology; specifically, with how food effects our quality of life, mental and physical health, and how food can be used to improve our relationships within our families and communities.

Kellyn has 15 years of experience in the food and hospitality industry, in the midst of which she graduated from The Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts in Boulder, Colorado in 2013. The program focused on “bare-bone” techniques in the kitchen, primarily using a knife, an oven, a whisk and a bowl to concoct all sorts of delicious foods. Outside of the kitchen, Kellyn studied modern agriculture to become more conscious of our food and where it comes from.

Kellyn’s style of cooking is an eclectic mix of healthy comfort food. Just because it is good for you doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste, texture and quality of a meal!

The downtown YMCAs have helped me find the path to wellness. I've done two half marathons and learned so much about bicycle safety because of their encouragement. The most supportive and caring staff (now friends) around. I love this place!!!
