We believe that all children and teens deserve a safe place to go after school to explore the arts, engage in physical activity, get help with homework and learn the importance of giving back to their community. At the Y, we provide learning environments that help our youth grow to be confident and connected today - and engaged, contributing citizens tomorrow.

yPalsAre you a tween or teen looking to give back? Would you like to make a difference in someone else's life? If so, then sign up to be a YPal! YPals are big hearted kids who can work as little as 1-2 hours per week with youth with special needs. Through orientation and ongoing support you will learn how to provide these youth with the friendship and compassion they need at the YMCA while having fun!
YPals will participate in various activities with their youth - everything from swimming and sports, to simply hanging out and having a great time!
A new session is starting soon! Join now
Registration form can be found here or at the East Membership Desk
