Welcoming Week @ Baxter YMCA
Sep 13 @ 5:00 am – Sep 22 @ 10:00 pm
Welcoming Week @ Baxter YMCA | Indianapolis | Indiana | United States

We believe our communities are stronger when everyone feels welcome and we work together for the common good. Welcoming Week celebrates the growing movement of inclusive communities that fully embrace new Americans and their contributions to the social fabric of our country. It’s a chance for neighbors – both immigrants and U.S.-born residents – in Greater Indianapolis to get to know one another and celebrate what unites us as a community!

YMCAs across Central Indiana and throughout the U.S. will be hosting special events all week long. Please join us!

Baxter YMCA Celebrations

Join us at one or all of these events to celebrate our differences. After all, our differences are what make our community stronger and a lot more fun!

Welcoming Week Lunch and Learn @ Baxter YMCA
Sep 16 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

Join us for a lunch and learn to celebrate the variety of cultures that help to make up the fabric of our south side community.  The first hour from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM will dive into the Chin culture.  The Chins are a minority ethnic population from North-Western Burma (Myanmar). The Chin community in Indianapolis has been growing in number since 2000 due to fleeing from the military dictatorship of their mother country, Burma. Having been relocated to a new place and environment, they have been voluntarily helping each other to meet their basic social and human needs.

The second hour from 12:30 – 1:30 PM will cover the Hispanic culture.  Throughout the history of the United States, people have come from various parts of the globe and have contributed to build this nation where we live today. Learning about the Hispanic heritage gives us an opportunity understand and enjoy the richness and diversity of the various Latin American cultures.
