What’s Your Y Story?

Do you have a favorite memory involving the Y?


Perhaps it’s the impact of a specific program or a caring staff member. Or the difference the Y has made in our community. If the Y has helped you or your family build confidence, achieve goals, volunteer, or is simply your “happy place,” we’d love to hear about it and be able to share your story with others.

Here are a few ideas to help get you started:

  • “My favorite memory of the Y is…”
  • “Being part of the Y makes me/my family feel…”
  • “The Y changed my/our life by…”
  • “I care most about the work the Y does for…”
