Achievement

We want to make sure that every child tries something new this summer and leaves the YMCA with a new skill. This could be trying their hand at archery, learning how to make friendship bracelets, or even developing their leadership skills by leading a group activity. Every child should have the chance to step outside of their comfort zone to experience new things.

Relationships

We want to make sure every child makes a connection at the Y with fellow participants and the staff. We want to help kids not only make new friends, but learn how to be good friends, too. We do this through being intentional with team building activities, opportunities to learn about those around us, and using our four core values.

Belonging

Every child should feel safe and at home at the Y. The YMCA is a space to be yourself and be welcomed by the people around you! We create this sense of belonging through our traditions and the relationships we build.

Core Values

 

At the YMCA, we have four core values that are embedded and taught every day. These values are at the core of all YMCA youth programs.

Caring: Being considerate to the needs and feelings of others
Honesty: Being trustworthy and truthful
Respect: Treating others, the environment, and yourself with dignity
Responsibility: Accepting accountability for your actions and role in the community
